Molecular Cardiology for the Cardiologists
Molecular Cardiology for the Cardiologist provides a short, easily readable summary of what the new biology brings to cardiology. With this in mind, special efforts have been made to present many comprehensive schemes and drawings, as well as teaching tables.
The five parts of the book provide a general introduction to the new language of biology; the normal structure of the heart and blood vessels; the physiopathology and the new therapeutic avenues that have been opened up by the new biology.
A concise summary of the keys that assist the cardiologist or student who seeks to learn and read more about this field. Provides practical examples to illustrate the clinical interest of the new approach.
