About this book

Molecular Cardiology for the Cardiologist, Second Edition provides a short, easily readable summary of what the new biology brings to cardiology. Special efforts have been made to include comprehensive diagrams and drawings, as well as teaching tables, and also to keep the size of the second edition within the modest limits of the first edition.
The book remains divided into 5 parts. The first part is a general introduction to the new terminology. The second part is devoted to the normal structure of the heart and vessels. Parts 3 and 4 deal with physiopathology. One of the important contributions of molecular biology to cardiology is a better understanding of the general process of adaptation of the heart and vessels to a permanent mechanical overloading. Such a process is generally called remodeling, and results from coordinate changes in the expression of the genes. The last part of the book includes information on gene and cellular therapy.

Reviews

`The author has deliberately punctuated the chapter with numerous technical terms which to his credit are well explained. Another useful feature is the addition of internet sites for gene databases. ...an excellent review of the subject starting from first principals. The numerous line diagrams are of a high quality and make an otherwise complex subject easily understandable.'
