Dispersion of Ventricular Repolarization: State ofthe Art
Bertil Olsson, Jan Amlie, Shiwen Yuan
Wiley, Oct 30, 2000 - Medical - 330 pages
This unique book is the first to offer an update of contemporary knowledge of the dispersion of ventricular repolarization (DVR), from basic concepts to the clinical application of recently obtained knowledge. World-renowned scientists and clinicians in the frontline of this research area have authored 20 chapters on a range of relevant issues.
Growing amounts of recent evidence demonstrate that, in addition to other mechanisms already associated with malignant ventricular arrhythmias, ventricular myocardial cellular repolarization and DVR should be considered as key factors in these arrhythmias, which are a major cause of death in patients with different types of cardiac disease. This understanding has directly impacted clinical practice by creating a platform for development of new treatment concepts.
This book will interest Cardiologists, Electrophysiologists, and Basic and Clinical Pharmacologists, and other clinicians interested in learning more about the subject.
