This book highlights recent advances in beta blockers research. Beta blockers have been used for the treatment of several clinical conditions and it is of paramount importance to understand their role and applications. Chapters of the book were written by experts in the fields of vascular disease, plastic surgery, cardiovascular medicine, pharmaceutical medicine and physiology from various countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Japan and New Zealand. Clinical topics on recent advances in β-blockers research covered in this book include the clinical effectiveness of β-blockers in patients with peripheral arterial disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, heart failure, acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary hypertension, object memory recognition, portal hypertension and infantile hemangioma. These chapters were written by authors who are experts in their fields and by researchers who are most up-to-date in the recent literature on advances in β-blockers research.
