By Victor J. Dzau MD, Choong-Chin Liew PhD

Until eventually lately, a modest wisdom of genetics was once greater than sufficient for the day-by-day perform of medical cardiology, yet advances in genetics and genomics are altering cardiovascular medication in primary methods. The id of the genetic foundation of a number of varieties of dyslipidemia, high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiomyopathies, and vascular illnesses signalled the hot value of genetics in scientific medication.

In this well timed quantity, Drs. Dzau and Liew – either pioneers within the region – support cardiologists comprehend: • how cardiovascular genetics might transform the best way cardiovascular medication is practiced • what fabric has rapid relevance to the working towards clinician • how one can contain genetics and genomics on your perform to make sure updated sufferer care

The booklet opens with introductory chapters, then discusses: • cardiovascular unmarried gene problems • cardiovascular polygenic problems • treatments and functions

Outstanding members write on their parts of workmanship, making Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics for the heart specialist either authoritative and finished. so one can achieve a greater appreciation of the way genetics and genomics are already shaping present perform and will very likely revolutionize cardiology, glance no additional than this accountable reference.
