Clinical, Interventional and Investigational Thrombocardiology
edited by
Richard C. Becker
and Robert A. Harrington

Clinical, Interventional and Investigational Thrombocardiology:

  • serves as the first source to link basic scientific principles, current clinical practices, and research related to the latest clinical investigations
  • contains tables that summarize data from randomized clinical trials, as well as clear figures highlighting key concepts in the text
  • includes sections on algorithms for clinical pharmacology, interventional treatment options, and cost-effective drug selection
  • reflects the explosion of new scientific information in this burgeoning field
Clinical, Interventional and Investigational Thrombocardiology comprehensively examines recent progress in the clinical pharmacology, investigation, and therapy of cardiovascular disease-providing expertly authored chapters that range from studies of disease mechanisms to new treatment strategies and advances in drug and device development.
