MAI MULTE DESPRE CARTE
The work represents an extensively-illustrated and clinically-oriented monograph on the anatomy of the coronary arteries addressed to all the specialists who diagnose and treat cardiac diseases, to residents in the above mentioned fields and not least, to the medical students.
The book emerges as a result of the author’s clinical and surgical experience, doubled by an important personal contribution to the basic anatomical discipline through the achievement of a study on 100 human heart specimens. An extensive review of the literature completes the text, providing an easy access to update information on coronary arterial anatomy and physiology both in normal and in disease, and particularly including data on cardiac development, congenital heart disease, coronary anomalies and variations.
Some debated or less known topics are comprehensibly presented, for example: collateral circulation and connections in the coronary system, myocardial bridging, the vascularization of particular cardiac areas and structures (e.g. septum, aortic and pulmonary roots, papillary muscles, conduction tissue), coronary arterial typology and dominance.
