Book Description

In recent years our understanding of the genetic links to cardiovascular disease has increased dramatically, helping to redefine the etiology and diagnostic criteria for numerous conditions, and allowing the development of novel, individualized treatments. In Principles of Molecular Cardiology leading specialists explore all the latest developments in molecular cardiologic research and therapy. The authors explain in a concise yet readable style the complex process of the heart`s development, the molecular bases of cardiovascular diseases, and the translation of these research advances to actual clinical treatments. The expert information provided here serves as an invaluable building block for novel treatment of cardiovascular diseases, and includes a comprehensive discussion of cardiac function and dysfunction, coronary artery disease, coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias, vascular diseases, and risk factors for cardiovascular disease. These state-of-the-art approaches to molecular cardiologic research include critical discussion of such topics as the molecular events that regulate angiogenesis and the potential for angiogenic therapy, emerging therapies of arrhythmias, and a description of the molecular biology of aging and its impact on the cardiovascular system. Authoritative and up-to-date, Principles of Molecular Cardiology offers cardiovascular scientists and fellows not only a quick yet insightful tour from bench to bedside of the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiovascular disease, but also as introduction to the just now emerging therapies based on our enriched understanding of the heart's molecular biology and genetics. Easy-tread survey of the molecular therapies for cardiovascular diseaseMolecular review of coronary artery disease, cardiac arrhythmias, and vascular diseasesInsight into emerging molecular and genetic therapiesOrganized by disease for quick access to treatment optionsExplanation of the molecular mechanisms underlying cardiac function and dysfunctionPractical understanding applicable at the bench and the bedsideState-of-the-art approaches in molecular medicineA sound basis for conducting serious research or teaching
