Description

The microvasculature refers to the smallest blood vessels, arterial and venous, that nurture the tissues of each organ. Apart from transport, they also contribute to the systematic regulation of the body. In everyday terminology, the microcirculation is "where the action is." Microcirculation is directly involved in such disease states as Alzheimers, inflammation, tumor growth, diabetic retinopathy, and wound healing- plus cardiovascular fitness is directly related to the formation of new capillaries in large muscles. Microvascular Research is the first book devoted exclusively to this vital systemic component of the cardiovascular system and provides up to date mini-reviews of normal functions and clinical states. The contributing authors are senior scientists with international reputation in their given disciplines.

This two-volume set is a broad, interdisciplinary work that encompasses basic research and clinical applications equally.

Review quote

"This book is an important contribution worth the attention of anyone who hopes to understand the biologic systems that are fundamental to the practice of medicine."
--Andrew S. Greene, Medical College of Wisconsin, in NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE (October 26, 2006)

"...will serve well anyone beginning or active in a career in microvascular health and disease, vascular biology, or endothelial cell function."
- Marc A. Silver, Director, Heart Failure Institute, Advocate Christ Medical Center, Oak Lawn, IL, U.S.A. for CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE (Aug 2006)

"...I found the nearly 1200 pages a very useful reference. ...Every integrative biology laboratory should own a copy."
- Richard P. Shannon, MD, Allegheny General Hospital
Drexel University College of Medicine, Pittsburgh, Pa, U.S.A. for CIRCULATION, Journal of the American Heart Association (2006)

"...has the potential, especially with the future electronic updates, to become a widely used resource by anyone in the field of microvascular biology."
- Doody's: 3 Stars (April 2006)
