About this book

Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. While the past 40 years have brought major progress in cardiac valve repair and replacement, there remain large patient populations that do not receive such therapies. This, in turn, implies a great need for future basic, applied, and clinical research and, ultimately, therapeutic developments.

Heart Valves is a state-of-the-art handbook dedicated to: 1) cardiac valve anatomy, 2) models for testing and research methods; 3) clinical trials; and 4) clinical needs and applications.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is a practical book that offers a comprehensive review of the history, research, and clinical applications of cardiac valve surgery. … This is an excellent source of information for all practitioners in the field. … The tables, pictures, and illustrations add to the experience, and the references are comprehensive and very useful. This is welcome companion book in the field of valve surgery. It is both detailed and comprehensive, and offers a unique perspective on the nuances of valve research.” (Michael Bates, Doody’s Book Reviews, May, 2013)
