In recent years, the understanding of the pathophysiological processes of atherosclerosis, a chronic inflammatory disease of the vessel wall being the leading cause for mortality in industrial countries, has tremendously increased. The feasibility of translating such knowledge to novel therapeutic approaches is currently being explored at various levels. This book highlights advances in atherosclerosis and links these to relevant therapeutic strategies. It compiles and details cutting-edge research in cardiovascular medicine from internationally renowned authors.

Atherosclerosis is a chronic disease affecting the entire arterial tree, representing an inflammatory response in the vessels. The pathogenesis of atherosclerosis involves complex processes leading to the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the risk factors, prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis. Topics include questioning the cholesterol-atherosclerosis hypothesis; diabetes-associated atherosclerosis and new therapies; the pathogenesis and oxidative mechanisms in atherosclerosis; peripheral arterial vasodilation for primary atherosclerosis prevention; and coronary artery atherosclerosis measured by a hybrid SPECT/CT camera.

Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are grossly insufficient and fail to identify the majority of victims prior to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment, Dr. Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis. The text focuses on accurate, yet underutilized, measures of subclinical atherosclerosis, notably coronary artery calcium scanning and carotid intima-media thickness measurement. The authors introduce a comprehensive approach to identifying the vulnerable patients (asymptomatic individuals at risk of a near future adverse event). Additional chapters discuss future directions towards containing the epidemic of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease using innovative solutions such as preemptive interventional therapies (bioabsorbable stents) for stabilization of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques, mass unconditional Polypill therapy for population-based risk reduction, and ultimately vaccination strategies to prevent the development of atherosclerosis. Up-to-date and authoritative, Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection, and Treatment is a must-have for any cardiologist or primary care physician who wishes to practice modern preventive cardiology and manage the increasing number of asymptomatic atherosclerotic patients. Outlines more accurate measures of risk (coronary artery calcium and carotid intima-media thickness) than traditional risk factors (total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol) Presents new multipronged strategies to aid in the early detection and treatment of high risk asymptomatic patients

The man is as old as his blood vessels. Arteriosclerosis is the most common degenerative vascular disease in civilization countries. Arteries are flexible and elastic blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients from the heart to the rest of the body. Arteriosclerosis is a hardening of the arteries restricting blood flow to the organs and tissues, because the arteries become thick and stiff. The organs and tissues connected to the affected arteries then don't receive enough blood to function properly. Atherosclerosis is a specific type of arteriosclerosis that refers to the buildup of fats, cholesterol, calcifications and other cellular waste products in and on the artery walls (plaques), which can restrict blood flow. Plaques can burst and trigger a blood clot. A blood clot can completely block blood flow and trigger a heart attack, stroke or another medical emergency. Symptoms of arteriosclerosis are chest pain or pressure (angina pectoris), numbness or weakness in your arms or legs, leg pain when walking (intermittent claudication), high blood pressure, kidney failure, erectile dysfunction, concentration problems, muscle spasms, feeling cold, fatigue etc. Causes of atherosclerosis are high cholesterol, an acidification of the body, hormonal disorders, smoking and alcohol, diabetes and other metabolic diseases, high blood pressure, obesity, a family history, hectic and stress associated with lack of exercise, and overeating - especially with animal fats. In this homeopathic and biochemical adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis with the help of Homeopathy, Schuessler salts (also named cell salts, tissue salts, biochemistry) and Acupressure. I will present the most proven homeopathic and biochemical (Schuessler salts) healing methods, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Homeopathy works holistically. It does not treat only single symptoms of arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis. It treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success in your treatment, joy of life and especially your health. You will find more information about health in my other ebooks and on my website. Robert Kopf
