Left Ventricular Hypertrophy -- Physiology versus Pathology is a bibliographical reflection of a Boerhaave Symposium held on April 9, 1999, in Leiden, The Netherlands. At this symposium the major issues in dealing with LVH were discussed, including etiology, genetics, detection, and therapy. In particular, the book includes novel detection methods for LVH such as magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy. Furthermore, much attention was paid to the molecular and genetic approach of LVH.
This book will assist clinical cardiologists, fellows in cardiology, general internists,radiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, biochemists, physiologists, pharmacologists, and basic research fellows in understanding the most recent insights in the background of physiologic versus pathologic LVH.
