The Cardiomyopathic Heart

The Cardiomyopathic Heart

by Makoto Nagano

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the symposium "Cellular Abnormalities Associated with Cardiomyopathies in Animals," held in Tokyo in May 1992 to provide a forum for experimental cardiologists and basic scientists to discuss problems related to heart dysfunction in cardiomyopathies. Since cardiomyopathic hamsters have been widely used as an experimental model of heart disease, Part I of this volume is devoted to hamster cardiomyopathy. Part II examines hypertrophic, congestive, and metabolic cardiomyopathies in different experimental models. Together, the contributions provide a comprehensive synthesis of recent advances in the physiology, pharmacology, and biochemistry of the cardiomyopathic heart. Annotation c.
