Book Description

Provides detailed discussions of the most recent developments in gene mapping and manipulation to improve the diagnosis, detection, prevention, and treatment of various cardiovascular diseases--including hypertension, arrhythmias, inherited cariomyopathies, hyperlipidemia, aortic aneurysms, Marfan syndrome, and myocardial infarction. Written by nearly 50 investigators on the cutting-edge of pioneering research in the field.
