Translational Research in Coronary Artery Disease: Pathophysiology to Treatment covers the entire spectrum of basic science, genetics, drug treatment, and interventions for coronary artery disease. With an emphasis on vascular biology, this reference fully explains the fundamental aspects of coronary artery disease pathophysiology.
Included are important topics, including endothelial function, endothelial injury, and endothelial repair in various disease states, vascular smooth muscle function and its interaction with the endothelium, and the interrelationship between inflammatory biology and vascular function.
By providing this synthesis of current research literature, this reference allows the cardiovascular scientist and practitioner to access everything they need from one source.
- Provides a concise summary of recent developments in coronary and vascular research, including previously unpublished data
- Summarizes in-depth discussions of the pathobiology and novel treatment strategies for coronary artery disease
- Provides access to an accompanying website that contains photos and videos of noninvasive diagnostic modalities for evaluation of coronary artery disease
