Scientists working or planning to work in the field of cardiovascular research will welcomePractical Methods in Cardiovascular Researchas the reference book they have long been waiting for. Not only general aspects of cardiovascular research are well presented, but also detailed descriptions of methods and protocols and practical examples. Written by leading scientists in their field, chapters cover classical methods such as the Langendorff heart or working heart models as well as numerous new techniques and methods. Newcomers and experienced researchers alike will benefit from the troubleshooting guide in each chapter, the extensive reference lists for advanced reading and the great practical experience of the authors.Practical Methods in Cardiovascular Researchis therefore a long awaited "must have" for anybody with an interest in cardiovascular research.
