Myocardial ischemia and lipid metabolism by R Ferrari( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past years, the thrust of research in cardiology has been toward an understanding of the engineering of the heart as a pump that transports blood to the various organs of the body. More recently, the fields of biochemistry and biophysics have come to influence heart research. The modern cardiologist can no longer pretend to understand, for example, what is happening to the patient with myocardial infarction or ischemia without understanding the principles of molecular biology. The structure and function of the heart are therefore central themes of cardiological research and practice, which incorporate knowledge and discoveries from diverse disciplines. The importance of lipid metabolism in the myocardium has become clearly understood. In the well-oxygenated heart, fatty acids are the preferred substrates. The fact that the heart derives most of its energy from the oxidation of lipids, which represent the larg­ est energy store of the body, is logical for an organ that must work throughout our lifetime. There are, however, several lines of evidence that during ischemia, lipids may. be harmful to the heart. High levels of free fatty acids in the serum have been suggested to play a role in causing life-threatening arryhthmias and damage in the ischemic heart. The molecular basis for these effects remains poorly understood, and several possible mechanisms for these harm­ ful effects have been suggested
The carnitine system : a new therapeutical approach to cardiovascular diseases by J. W Jong( )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last few years, derivatives of L-carnitine, such as acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine, have been made available to doctors for treatment of specific pathologies. The effects of this family of related carnitine compounds on cardiovascular systems and diseases constitute the major issue addressed in this volume. Although several books on carnitine have been published, a treatise focusing on experimental and clinical aspects of the carnitine family and cardiovascular diseases was lacking. The present book provides the reader with a concise update in this field. The information collected from experts on various aspects of the fascinating compound, carnitine, will be useful for both clinicians and basic scientists

Heart rate management in stable angina( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stable angina pectoris is a clinical syndrome characterized by chest pain or discomfort that is secondary to myocardial ischemia and is without the clinical features associated with instability. Usually, stable angina is secondary to significant stenosis of the coronary arteries. In short, stable angina is very much separate to myocardial infarction: stable angina is angina without the instability. With a prevalence of 20-40 per 100 000 in the adult population, the prognosis of patients with stable angina is variable and risk stratification facilitates the selection of treatment options. This text focuses on pharmaceutical therapies and should be a useful guide for clinicians
