An Introduction to Vascular Biology: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice
Vascular biology is an exciting and rapidly advancing area of medical research, with many new and emerging pathophysiological links to an increasing number of diseases. This updated and expanded new edition takes full account of these developments and conveys the basic science underlying a wide range of clinical conditions including atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, and pregnancy. As with the first edition, the publication provides an introductory account of vascular biology before leading on to explain mechanisms involved in disease processes.
