Cardiomyopathies: realisations and expectations
John F. Goodwin, Eckhardt G. J. Olsen
Springer-Verlag, 1993 - Medical - 315 pages
This book links basic science and clinical research in the exciting field ofcardiomyopathies. New results of biological studies in dilated cardiomyopathy and myocarditis with their implications for treatment (including cardiac transplantations and immune therapy) are presented; molecular genetic studies on gene identification in hypertrophic cardiomyopathies are relevant to prenatal diagnosis and possibly treatment. These are some of the topics presented in this book, which is indispensable for all researchers and clinicians working in the field.
