Understanding the pathophysiology; cellular mechanisms of disease progression; different risk factors for cardiovascular disease; dietary effects on cardiovascular health and cultural differences are as important as dealing with the economic burden of cardiovascular mortality and morbidity.

Frontiers in Cardiovascular Health discusses the factors that lead to cardiovascular death and strategies for their prevention from molecule to population.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gustavo A Cardenas, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is a compendium of reviews presented at an international conference of leading authorities regarding topics related to cardiovascular disease. These topics are of interest to practicing cardiologists, clinicians, and researchers interested in cardiovascular health. The book includes a range of topics including biochemical, nutritional and lifestyle factors related to cardiovascular disease, as well as its epidemiology.
Purpose: The purpose is to disseminate the knowledge of leading scientists and researchers in the field of cardiovascular medicine, including novel and traditional risk factors, nutrition, lifestyle issues and epidemiologic patterns. This information will help clinicians understand the molecular and biological mechanisms of the disease. The book meets its objectives in general.
Audience: According to the authors, the book is intended for physicians who treat patients with heart disease and those who are involved in research on cardiovascular disease. It may be of particular interest those physicians interested in primary prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Features: The book is divided into three sections. The first part of the book addresses predisposing factors related to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease from a molecular and cellular level. The second part covers topics that relate to aspects of nutrition and metabolism with regard to cardiovascular health. The last part focuses on epidemiologic patterns of cardiovascular disease in underdeveloped areas of the world, including the impact of individual lifestyles.
Assessment: I found this book to be uniquely informative about many areas of cardiovascular medicine. It illustrates the impact of basic and translational research on the practice of cardiovascular medicine worldwide. Additionally, relevant information about epidemiologic aspects of cardiovascular health in underdeveloped areas of the world is provided.
