Open Access Medical Books

This book has been written with the intention of providing an up to-the minute review 
of acute coronary syndromes. Atherosclerotic coronary disease is still a leading cause 
of death within developed countries and not surprisingly, is significantly rising in 
others. Over the past decade the treatment of these syndromes has changed 
dramatically. The introduction of novel therapies has impacted the outcomes and 
surviving rates in such a way that the medical community need to be up to date 
almost on a “daily bases”.
It is hoped that this book will provide a timely update on acute coronary syndromes 
and prove to be an invaluable resource for practitioners seeking new and innovative 
ways to deliver the best possible care to their patients.
