Description 

Weighted Numerical Score: 100 - 5 Stars! This is a systematic guide to cardiovascular genetics and genomics from basic concepts to clinical application. It organizes a large volume of information from an active area of research, which holds promise for future discovery. --Doody's Reviews

Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics in Clinical Practice presents clinical cases to illuminate basic concepts of cardiovascular genetics and genomics as practitioners encounter them in day-to-day practice. The unique use of real-world case discussions facilitates the memorization and understanding of basic principles, which can be more readily applied to actual cases.

Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics in Clinical Practice features a step-by-step learning process that begins with an easy-to-understand "primer" of basic scientific concepts regarding cardiovascular genetics and genomics followed by state-of-the-art research and applications for treatment of cardiovascular disorders. Expert clinicians and researchers describe illustrative cases for each topic along with detailed discussions of current scientific understanding and its application in current disease management and treatment. Summaries, key teaching points, and illustrations are highlighted to facilitate quick recall and review. The book will be useful for cardiovascular clinicians in training, board preparation, or as a review for those already in clinical practice.

Cardiovascular Genetics and Genomics in Clinical Practice features:

  • Clinical case scenarios to illuminate the basic concepts of cardiovascular genetics and genomics as they are used in daily practice
  • Explanation of fundamental concepts as a foundation for more in-depth understanding
  • Detailed discussions of current scientific knowledge and clinical management
  • The expertise of renowned clinician-scientists in the field
  • Real practical insight for practice
