Editors: Eleanor H. Bennington
Book Description:
Cardiovascular disease refers to the class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. While the term technically refers to any disease that affects the cardiovascular system, it is usually used to refer to those related to atherosclerosis. Chronic heart failure (CHF) has emerged as a major worldwide epidemic. This book gathers the latest research in cardiovascular disease with a focus on such topics as cardiac sarcoidosis; heart failure and acute phase proteins; endothelial dysfunction in hypertension; treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery; cholesterol and coronary atherosclerosis; pulse decomposition for artery pressure waveforms; and multidetector computed tomography as a potential modality to detect subclinical atherosclerosis. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
