Electrical Disease of the Heart, 2nd Edition, volume 2, covers the diagnostic and treatment options available in the management of electrical diseases and with its companion volume provides the latest developments in the field of experimental and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, genetics, pharmacology and interventional therapies of various clinical arrhythmogenic entities. This book is highly relevant to a broad audience, ranging from medical and graduate students, to clinicians and scientists.
Provides a perspective on primary (heritable) electrical disease of the heart and sudden cardiac death in cardiology, neurology, nephrology, endocrinology by emphasizing the clinical and basic aspects of the physiology and pathophysiology
Thought-provoking and enlightening emphases on the latest research and clinical accomplishments
Chapters structured with exposure to the experimental background of each electrical disease, syndrome, and ECG phenomenon stressing the relationship with clinical practice
