New Books on Cardiovascular Health

Here is the list of new books on Cardiovascular Health, an important component of human longevity.

The books are listed in reversed chronological order (the most recent books are listed first). To get more information about these books, just click on the titles below:

Textbook of Interventional Cardiovascular Pharmacology
by Nicholas Kipshidze, Jawad Fareed, Patrick W. Serruys, and Jeff Moses (Hardcover - Jun 1, 2007)

Book Description:
While all interventional cardiologists have access to pharmacopeial texts and databases and are aware of the growing number of pharmacological agents in the armamentarium, questions arise as to the ideal agent or combination of agents in differing patient situations. This book offers the reader coverage of all the major pharmacological therapies used in treating the cath lab patient from the practical, personal perspective of those actively involved in interventional cardiology.

Molecular Sensors for Cardiovascular Homeostasis
by Donna H. Wang (Hardcover - May 15, 2007)

Book Description:
Biological homeostasis is maintained via intact function of an array of molecules detecting changes of microenvironments inside and outside of the biological system. These molecules, including cell membrane proteins and ion channels, are intimately involved in a variety of sensory pathways and respond to environmental stimuli, including altered temperature, pH, mechanical and osmotic stress, intra- and extracellular messengers, as well as changes in energy consumption. The book reveals the state-of-the-science of several newly discovered ion channel families and their role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. This work offers comprehensive and up-to-date information for a deeper understanding of the relationship between macro- and micro-environments, ion channels, and pathophysiological responses, and for developing novel therapies for treating devastating cardiovascular illnesses.

Cardiovascular Medicine
by James T. Willerson, Jay N. Cohn, Hein J.J. Wellens, and David R. Holmes (Hardcover - Mar 8, 2007)

Book Description:
Cardiovascular Medicine, 3rd Edition offers the most up-to-date, user-friendly guidance on the evaluation, diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of heart and vascular disease and will be relevant to the practice of every cardiologist, cardiac surgeon, vascular surgeon, diabetologist, cardiac radiologist and any physician who manages cardiac patients. The book and DVD package is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of every aspect of cardiovascular medicine from cardiac signs and symptoms and the full range of cardiac imaging techniques through management of peripheral vascular disease and the genetic basis for cardiovascular disease to preventive cardiology.
Drs James Willerson, Jay Cohn, Hein Wellens, David Holmes – and over 150 world authorities – offer their decades of scientific and clinical experience. One of the main features of the book is the consistent chapter organization relevant to modern cardiovascular practice, clear design and engaging text that includes specific features such as tables, lists and treatment boxes that are designed to allow easy access to key information. The reader will have all the guidance to diagnose and manage the full range of cardiovascular conditions in one textbook resource, while also benefiting from access to additional video material from the integral DVD-ROM.
More than 1800 illustrations – including a wealth of color Doppler, nuclear and CT imaging, surgical and pathological images – clarify complex principles and help in the understanding of the subtleties of technique and their application, so that they can be quickly and easily implemented into the reader’s practice.

by Piero Anversa, William Frishman, Mehrdad Abedi, and Takayuki Asahara (Hardcover - Mar 1, 2007) - Illustrated
