Fifty-one papers previously presented at a symposium in Philadelphia. Topics covered include pathogenesis (biochemical, histologic, epidemiologic, emotional factors); hyperlipidemia especially in relation to hormones, diet, and drugs; coronary artery disease (natural history, diagnosis, treatment); renovascular hypertension; and cerebrovascular and peripheral-vascular insufficiency. The papers vary widely in coverage and detail; some are very adequate, but others are sketchy. Some papers are rehashes that had been dished out elsewhere on the symposium circuit. All in all, this collection is a clinically useful survey of current research and practice in vascular disease of the heart, head, kidneys, and legs.
