Series: Horizons in World Cardiovascular Research
BISAC: MED010000

This volume includes five chapters that detail recent updates in cardiovascular research from around the world. Chapter One analyzes the relationship between arterial stiffness and diabetic cardiac autonomic neuropathy. Chapter Two examines arterial stiffness in arteriosclerotic development from the point of view of fluid dynamics. Chapter Three describes the use of short-term mechanical circulatory support devices for patients in critical condition who are waiting for heart transplantation. Chapter Four discusses the etiologies, pathophysiology, and management of ventricular tachycardia. Lastly, Chapter Five deals with strategies for managing vascular injuries during video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomies.
