In this collection of 21 chapters, the 36 authors of remarkable expertise and diverse geographical origin have provided a comprehensive, contemporary, and futuristic perspective, with all of the evidence-based data, for patients presenting with acute coronary syndromes in the late 1990s. , for their supportive effort.
