Overview

Edited by eminent leaders in the field and with contributions from key international experts, Heart Failure: Pathogenesis and Management explores all aspects of myocardial disorders. It begins with an examination of the basic concepts of myocardial architecture and physiology, and then considers the pathogenetic mechanisms involved in the evolution of cardiomyopathic disorders. The third section explores secondary disorders, describing the full range of common pathogenesis. It provides practical guidance on the management of cardiomyopathies and reviews of the latest non-transplant surgical intervention techniques in the management of end-stage cardiomyopathies.
