About these proceedings


The book aims to give the most up-to-date information about the epidemiology, the pathophysiology, the diagnosis and the new treatments of the Emerging Pathologies in Cardiology. It presents the state of the art on Acute Coronary Syndromes, Sudden Cardiac Death, Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation, Syncope and Prevention of Global Cardiovascular Risk which are some of the emerging pathologies urging investigators to develop many and more sophisticated pharmacological, electrical or mechanical therapies. The volume chapters are written by world-renowned leading experts in these fields, and present a detailed analysis of the most recent developments in the treatment of the above mentioned cardiac pathologies.
