Maisch, B; Oelze, R.
During the last decades, progress has been made in the treatment of patients who survived myocardial infarction. Nevertheless, patients who survive an acute myocardial infarction are at high risk, with life expectancy half that of their peers who have not experienced similar events, and with increased risk for subsequent cardiovascular events and death. The risk of sudden death increases with severity of systolic dysfunction after myocardial infarction. In recent years, it has become clear that in addition to risk factors such as overweight, lack of exercise, smoking, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, psychosocial factors play a key role for prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction. Therefore, there is high medical need for drugs which lower the incidence of sudden death and have an effect on other risk factors such as depression. OMACOR[registered], a pharmaceutical preparation of highly purified and concentrated [OMEGA]-3 polyunsaturated acids, may present such a drug. It lowers the incidence of sudden death in patients with myocardial infarction and decreases depression. This publication focuses on the effect of [OMEGA]-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on different risk factors in patients with cardiovascular disease. In addition, aspects of prevention of cardiovascular disease, risk factors and pharmacokinetics of [OMEGA]-3 fatty acids ethyl esters are considered. 185pp.

Cunningham, Rosemary
Those who think arts and culture in British Columbia is a recent development might be surprised to learn that opera has been flourishing in the province for well over a hundred years. The first full performance in Victoria took place in 1877 and in Vancouver in 1891. This first-ever history of opera in BC celebrates important milestones for BC's two major companies: Vancouver Opera's 50th anniversary, with the 30th anniversary of Pacific Opera Victoria following in 2010. It also marks the recent upsurge in the popularity of the venerable art form, with new opera groups and simul-cast venues proliferating across the province. Illustrated with over 100 exquisite photographs and rare archival images, "Bravo!" traces the history of opera in the province from its colourful origins in touring companies, to the determined efforts of BC's opera pioneers who laid the foundations for two of Canada's most renowned opera companies, culminating with in-depth reporting on recent developments at Vancouver Opera and Pacific Opera Victoria. Special features include behind-the-scenes accounts of contemporary productions, full listings of Vancouver Opera, Pacific Opera Victoria and Modern Baroque Opera productions and detailed information on BC opera singers, composers and opera training in the province. 208pp.

Barlee, N. L.
The largest and one of the most fascinating counties in the state. Here the footloose and curious may wander past long forgotten towns and abandoned town sites with colourful names, or range through the sweeping desert lands into the remote high country. There is much to hold the passer by; legends of hidden gold and long lost mines, several of them still searched for by close-mouthed treasure hunters and others intrigued by the age old quest for gold. And some of those historic towns of yesterday, places like Wauconda, Nighthawk and old Molson, still stand, silent monuments to the past and little changed in almost a hundred years. Walk through the brooding recesses of McLauhlin's Canyon and along the banks of rivers with lyrical Indian manes, and you still stalk the West of the 19th Century - and THAT'S Okanogan County. 223pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.
