About this book


This definitive textbook details the rapid advances in epidemiology, pathobiology and therapeutics in the field of pulmonary hypertension. Despite recent progress, under-awareness persists within the practicing pulmonary, cardiovascular, and general internal medicine communities. This is due, in part, to the complex array of molecular mechanisms implicated in the pathobiology of PH, as well as cutting-edge discoveries from translational scientific works that provide a new framework by which to understand pulmonary vascular-right ventricular coupling. This book bridges this knowledge gap through the synthesis of a contemporary text that emphasizes basic science, translational and clinical principles, and treatment strategies for understanding pulmonary hypertension.

Pulmonary Hypertension: Basic Science to Clinical Medicine is the essential reference for any physician or scientist with an interest in pulmonary hypertension. The Editors and their hugely knowledgeable list of contributors have provided a contemporary, comprehensive overview of the field in all of its complexity that will be vital for all levels of clinician, researcher and trainee in respiratory medicine, cardiology, critical care and all disciplines involved in the management of patients with pulmonary hypertension.
