Eleanor H. Bennington (Editor)

Series: Horizons in World Cardiovascular Research
BISAC: MED010000

This book provides readers with the latest developments in cardiovascular research. Topics covered include an analysis of the effectiveness of newer drugs when compared to Warfarin in reducing the mortality and complications from atrial fibrillation; the epidemiological differences and evolution of high-risk acute coronary syndrome in men and women; cardiovascular control via the vestibular system; an alternative view on inflammation and the endothelium, which plays a crucial role for different substantial vascular functions; the epidemiology, physiopathology and the diagnosis and treatment of renovascular hypertension; a therapeutic approach to treating hypovolemic shock; pathological findings, diagnostic strategies and treatment of left ventricular pseudoaneurysm (LVPA); the structure, development and functions of sarcalumenin, a glycoprotein involved in skeletal and cardiac muscles; hybrid coronary revascularization and the dietary factors that play an important role in the modulation of hypertension – the fourth contributor to premature death in developed countries and the seventh in developing countries.
