Cardiovascular Engineering: A Protective Approach (Original PDF from Publisher)


Cardiovascular engineering principles and practices with a focus on disease prevention

Aimed at advanced students taking cardiovascular, regenerative, and tissue engineering courses, Cardiovascular Engineering: A Protective Approach explores applications of protective engineering strategies and technologies to common cardiovascular disorders.  A protective approach to cardiovascular engineering involves studying the naturally occurring mechanisms that protect molecules, cells, and organs from injury and dysfunction.  The goal is to use this understanding to design and develop engineering-based therapeutic strategies and technologies that prevent cardiovascular injury and disease. Readers will learn the fundamental and applied aspects of cardiovascular engineering.

Coverage includes:

    • Foundations of cardiovascular protective engineering• Development of the heart, blood vessels, and blood cells• Stem cells and regeneration• Structure and function of the heart and blood vessels• Cytokines and growth factors in cardiovascular disease• Mechanisms of disease• Systems protective mechanisms against injury• Protective engineering strategies• Systemic hypertension• Atherosclerosis and arterial aneurysms• Ischemic heart disease and ischemic stroke• Cardiomyopathies and congenital heart disease
