Twenty-five authors contributed 20 articles to this issue of The Medical Clinics of North America. Fifteen of the articles are grouped together in the form of a Symposium on Recent Advances in Cardiovascular Diseases. Such timely topics as the role of low-cholesterol diets in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and a discussion on the congenital cardiovascular anomalies which are benefited by surgical intervention are comprehensively reviewed in easily readable outline form.
Of additional interest are an up-to-date review of some of the more important features in the clinical use of corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisone (by Dr. Edwin N. Irons) and an article dealing with practical problems in the use of antibiotics by Dr. H. F. Dowling and Dr. M. H. Lepper.
