Abstract

"Electrical Diseases of the Heart: Genetics, Mechanisms, Treatment, Prevention" provides a unique contemporary and succinct distillation of the current status of recently delineated electrical diseases of the heart, emphasizing their common and diverse clinical features. The latest developments in the field of experimental and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, genetics, pharmacology and interventional therapies of various clinical arrhythmogenic entities are featured and discussed in terms of recent advances in basic and clinical science. The book is divided into 7 major parts. Each part consists of chapters (total of 64) dealing with related topics. Each chapter is outlined with objectives, key points, current perspectives, and recommendations for future investigations and includes established and evidence-based knowledge, the author's personal opinions, areas of controversy, and future trends.
