This comprehensive book describes the structure, function and imaging of the normal right heart both at rest and under the stresses of high altitude and exercise. It continues with a detailed examination of the pathophysiology and pathobiology of right heart dysfunction, both in experimental models and human disease, including congenital heart disease. Right heart dysfunction caused by pulmonary hypertension is discussed in particular detail.
The Right Heart brings together a distinguished group of contributors to discuss the advances in the topic that have occurred over the last few years and provides a concise and up-to-date resource for clinicians By compiling this comprehensive state-of-the-art text on the subject, the Editors have created an indispensable reference for future work by those interested in the cardiopulmonary circuit.
