Book Description

Though still in its infancy, the revascularization of damaged cardiac cells with transplanted cells is currently being transformed from a research concept to a clinical tool. Drawing on information from experimental studies and first clinical trials, Handbook of Cardiovascular Cell Transplantation explores the use of a number of different cell types to repair damaged myocardium and/or coronary vessels and to induce angiogenesis.

Interdisciplinary in approach, the handbook strikes a balance between the basic and clinical science of cell transplantation. The editors bring together pioneers in fields such as vascular biology, molecular cardiology, physiology, cardiothoracic surgery, interventional cardiology and radiology, to name just a few, creating a multidisciplinary panel that emphasizes the multidisciplinary nature of the research. This top-rate team of international researchers and clinicians offer their experience in transplanting tissues to damaged hearts, strategies for providing safe, beneficial repair of damaged myocardium, and enhancing angiogenesis in ischemic myocardium.
