"Heart disease remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the industrialized countries and can occur in men and women of any age. The contributors to this special issue, all of them leading authors in the field, focus on cardiovascular disease in women. As a result, this publication gives an up-to-date overview of the latest developments in this particular field, with information ranging from basic concepts to the treatment of women patients and including social aspects. The articles discuss topics such as coronary artery disease and its prevention, myocardial infarction and its treatment, congestive heart failure, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, estrogen replacement as well as on-going clinical trials." "'Cardiovascular Disease in Women' takes a further step towards the solving of an international health care problem and will be of interest to practising physicians, nurses, students of medicine and clinical researchers all over the world."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
