Description

Until recently, a modest knowledge of genetics was more than adequate for the daily practice of clinical cardiology, but advances in genetics and genomics are changing cardiovascular medicine in fundamental ways. The identification of the genetic basis of several forms of dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes, cardiomyopathies, and vascular diseases signalled the new importance of genetics in clinical medicine. In this timely volume, Drs. Dzau and Liew - both pioneers in the area - help cardiologists understand: * how cardiovascular genetics may remodel the way cardiovascular medicine is practiced * what material has immediate relevance to the practicing clinician * how to incorporate genetics and genomics in your practice to ensure up-to-date patient care The book opens with introductory chapters, then discusses: * cardiovascular single gene disorders * cardiovascular polygenic disorders * therapies and applications Outstanding contributors write on their areas of expertise, making Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics for the Cardiologist both authoritative and comprehensive. If you want to gain a better appreciation of how genetics and genomics are already shaping current practice and may potentially revolutionize cardiology, look no further than this dependable reference.
