Coronary heart disease is a major source of disability in the elderly, yet there are no standard definitions for patients over 65 years of age, and few studies have evaluated methods for preventing and treating coronary disability in this age group. In this issue, Dr. Philip Ades reviews the epidemiology, mechanisms, and management of coronary disability in the elderly population. This is followed by a report from the Council on Geriatric Cardiology, an annotated bibliography of the world literature relevant to cardiovascular disease in the elderly, and a calendar of upcoming meetings and events.
