Atlas of Coronary Artery Disease
An atlas of all aspects of coronary atheroma and ischemic heart disease, detailing normal anatomy and structure, disease processes, coronary plaque, myocardial ischemia, atherosclerosis, non-atherosclerotic coronary disease, and interventional vascular disease. There are illustrations which show the perfuse fixed human coronary arteries as they would be seen by the naked eye, and the morphology is related to the angiographic appearances seen in post-mortem studies.
