Completely revised and updated, the Second Edition of the Atlas of Atherosclerosis Progression and Regression contains new material and new illustrations from Dr. Stary's groundbreaking work in the field of atherosclerosis diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. Over 100 photographs show arterial and lesion structure and individual components in unprecedented detail. These images allow you to compare and contrast healthy arteries with those developing and regressing lesions. They illustrate the successive steps in the natural history of human atherosclerotic disease from the microscopically visible, lipid-filled macrophages in susceptible locations of arteries to lesion forms that produce clinical symptoms.The book provides an up-to-date, pathology-based framework of morphologies of atherosclerotic vascular lesions that serves as a basis for correlation with morphologies determined by a variety of clinical imaging techniques. Demonstrating the evolution of arterial lesions fo rm the clinically silent the clinically relevant, An Atlas of Atherosclerosis Progression and Regression is a teaching aid and diagnostic tool for recognizing changes in lesion progression, stabilization, or regression.About the author: Dr. Stary is Professor of Pathology at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans. He came to New Orleans via the Departments of Pathology of the McGill (Montreal) and Yale (New Haven) Medical Schools. For 7 years, Dr. Stary also served as chairman of the American Heart Association's Committee on Vascular Lesions.
