A progressive increase in the elderly population of the United States and the high prevalence of atherosclerotic coronary heart disease among members of this age group has necessitates this pertinent compilation of papers titles Coronary Heart Disease in the Elderly . Authorative research specialists survey current knowledge available on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, and management of coronary heart disease in the elderly. This collection of papers is derived from the Working Conference on the Recognition and Management of Coronary Heart Disease in the Elderly, held September 4-6, 1985, at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, Maryland.
