Synopsis
Cardiac Mechano-Electric Coupling and Arrhythmias offers a thoroughly reviewed compendium written by leading experts in the field on the mechanism and consequences of cardiac mechano-electrical coupling. Its coverage ranges from stretch-activated ion channels to mechanically induced arrhythmias and mechanical interventions for heart rhythm correction. Information is grouped into logical sections, from molecular mechanisms, to cell, tissue and whole organ responses, right through to patient-based observations and insight emerging from clinical trials. The information provided carefully highlights both consensus insight and current shortcomings in our understanding of cardiac mechano-electric coupling. The book has been thoroughly revised and expanded since publication of the first edition in 2005, extensively updated to reflect recent developments in the field, and now offers a more balanced view of mechano-electrical interactions in the heart and develops a more clinical focus. Written with the practising cardiologist and junior doctor in mind, it offers interesting new insight for the established physician with an interest in cardiac arrhythmogenesis and heart rhythm management.

The original edition of this book was published over six years ago and was primarily intended for basic scientists. This edition is more than just a rewrite as it has been substantially updated with more than a 50% increase in chapters... The collected contributors represent the best basic scientists and clinical investigators in their field and as such the quality and clarity of the presentation is excellent throughout... There really is little else in this area to
compare with and, as such, this book is excellent value for money. * Cardiology News, May 2013 * This edition is more than just a rewrite as it has been substantially updated with more than a 50% increase in chapters. As a result it now extends beyond the basic science of cardiac mechano-electric coupling, through translational studies, to situations involving clinically relevant arrhythmias, and even points towards possible future developments and areas of future research. The collected contributors represent the best basic scientists and clinical investigators
in their field and as such the quality and clarity of the presentation is excellent throughout ... There really is little else in this area to compare with and, as such, this book is excellent value for money. * Cardiology News, April 2013 *
