Summary "In Carotid Atherosclerotic Disease: Pathologic Basis for Treatment, leading authors in the field of coronary and carotid events have reviewed the natural history of carotid atherosclerotic plaque and outlined the various pathologic characteristics of the asymptomatic and symptomatic carotid plaque. Their intention is to give a pathology-based rationale for the assessment, risk stratification and decisionmaking involved in creating a therapeutic strategy for patients affected by carotid disease." "Given its importance, number of chapters are dedicated to the impact of carotid plaque imaging from high-resolution MRI to new Doppler imaging modalities and vasa vasorum detection in correctly assessing plaque risk stratification. The new concept of a stent tailored to an individual plaque morphology and a cerebral protection device chosen to match particular plaque features is analyzed in detail. Finally, future advancements in gene therapy and carotid arterial wall repair are reviewed by those with an especial knowledge of the subject."--BOOK JACKET
