Cardiovascular disease refers to the class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. While the term technically refers to any disease that affects the cardiovascular system, it is usually used to refer to those related to atherosclerosis. Chronic heart failure (CHF) has emerged as a major worldwide epidemic. This book gathers the latest research in cardiovascular disease with a focus on such topics as genetic risk factors for abdominal aortic aneurysms; blood pressure monitoring in biological time structures seasonal variations in ordinary living with perioperative case and salt restriction/weight reduction; genetics and perinatal milieus affecting saline preference in hypertensive rats; the influence of apolipoproteins in cardiovascular diseases; and novel effects of macrolide on MMP-related cardiovascular remodeling.
