    Book details

Despite remarkable advances in the understanding and management of impaired left ventricular function (LVF) and related coronary disease, the prevalence of heart failure in the U.S. and the resulting death rates have almost tripled in the past 3 decades. New understanding of the relationships between the myocardium and LVF demonstrate a direct correlation between myocardial viability and improved patient survival. Because of this, myocardial viability is now a major investigative area in contemporary cardiology, one that holds significant clinical and prognostic relevance.

Authored by physicians of international renown, the book brings together various disciplines affecting myocardial viability, with five main sections providing an introduction and comprehensive review of: basic concepts and mechanisms: vascular biology and cellular physiology: advances in functional imaging: and perfusion, metabolism and cell membrane integrity. New concepts, such as stunning and hibernation, are clarified, and subsequent novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies are described. New and sophisticated examination techniques are also presented, as well as advances in instrumentation and imaging techniques, which may result in improved use of resources and enhanced efficiency of health care delivery.

This monograph will serve as a reference source for those interested in the field of myocardial viability, and hopefully improve understanding between investigators from various disciplines. Clinical cardiologists, physicians, and nurses in the field, as well as radiologists, vascular surgeons, reperfusionists, cellular biologists and physiologists, and students will all find material of interest in this book.
