Atrial Fibrillation – Mechanisms and Treatment PDF
6.09 MB PDF
Atrial fibrillation is a rapidly evolving epidemic associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and its prevalence has increased during the past few decades. In the past few years, the recent understanding of the diverse mechanisms of this arrhythmia has led to the improvement of our therapeutic strategies. However, many clinicians have still felt the frustration in management of this commonly encountered arrhythmia.
This book contains a spectrum of different topics from bench to bedside in atrial fibrillation. We try to introduce the most recent advancement of mechanisms and treatment of AF including genetics, calcium signaling, thrombogenesis, signal analysis, upstream therapies focus on renin- angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors, antioxidants and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and anticoagulation issues. I strongly believe that scientists, cardiologists and electrophysiologists will find this book very informative and useful. The references cited in each chapter will definitely act as additional source of information for readers.
