Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most important cause of death in many developed countries and will be an increasing problem for developing nations. The book provides the clinician with a contemporary evidence base on which to establish the management of lipid problems. A practical approach is taken to screening, diagnosis and risk-assessment to identify those patients at highest risk for whom intervention is most beneficial and cost-effective. Aspects of risk-factor modification are discussed including lifestyle change and cholesterol lowering by diet and medication. The practical focus is maintained by highlighting specific patient groups who demonstrate clinical importance, management difficulty or remaining controversy. The authors balance the approaches of the specialist and the primary care physician throughout the book but not least in the discussion of twenty real life illustrated examples. The book provides a clear, comprehensive and up-to-date account of the role of lipid management in the prevention of CHD giving the clinician sufficient confidence to manage lipid problems in both primary and secondary care settings.
