About this book

This heavily revised second edition of this critical book details the structure, function and imaging of the normal right heart both at rest and under the stresses of high altitude and exercise. Extensively revised chapters cover the pathophysiology and pathobiology of right heart dysfunction, both in experimental models and human disease, including congenital heart disease and pulmonary hypertension.

The Right Heart provides a concise up-to-date guide on the latest advances in our understanding of role of the right heart in the cardiopulmonary circuit and is an indispensable up-to-date resource for clinicians interested in this topic.
