Blood Vessels and Lymphatics on Organ Systems provides an introduction to the general and the specific characteristics of blood vessels and lymphatics in organ systems. It offers a structured, multidisciplinary approach to the broad field of vascular science, emphasizing both established and recent concepts. These include vascular networks such as those in the pineal, parathyroids, pancreas, adrenals, adipose tissue, and special senses; and functions of vascular endothelium.
The book is organized into two parts. Part One on the general properties of blood vessels and lymphatics deals with the general aspects of the arteries, veins, microcirculation, and lymphatic channels. Part Two discusses the embryologic, morphologic, physiologic, pharmacologic, pathophysiologic, and pathologic characteristics of blood and lymph circulations in each of the important organ systems.
This book was written for graduate students in the areas of blood and lymph circulation and for advanced research workers or clinicians seeking sources of information on advances in cardiovascular science.
