About this book

Understanding the many complex cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying human vascular diseases is essential in improving the management of patients with this clinically important and wide-ranging group of diseases. This is particularly important when considering the extent of this issue across the world.

Written by a team of world-renowned authorities, Advances in Vascular Medicine highlights some of the relationships between basic science and clinical medicine, and reviews both research and clinical practice methods and outcomes in vascular biology and pathobiology. It is an authoritative reference for these important topics of vascular biology and includes chapters that explain the clinical issues to the basic scientist as well as providing clinicians with a scientific grounding in vascular diseases. Although there is still much work to be done to advance understanding of vascular disease, the information and insights contained in this book are a vital contribution to the literature, giving scientists and clinicians the opportunity to learn more about this exciting field of biomedicine.

Reviews

From the reviews: “This collection presents focused discussions on the current understanding of endothelial function, atherosclerosis, pulmonary hypertension, systemic sclerosis, and chronic thromboembolic disease. … It is directed at a diverse audience of scientists and physicians who specialize in vascular disease. … provides clinical insight, which is useful for basic scientists and clinical researchers. It also offers vascular surgeons, cardiologists, rheumatologists, and vascular medicine physicians … . The high quality writing offers stimulating and relevant ideas to both investigators and clinicians.” (Judith L. Meadows, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2010)
