Contents:
Front Cover; Inside Front Cover; Table of Contents; Foreword; Chapter 1: Coronary Arterial Disease in the Cardiac Allograft; Chapter 2: Atherosclerosis--Response to Injury; Chapter 3: The Immune Response to Endothelial Cells; Chapter 4: Role of Hemostasis, Anticoagulation, Fibrinolysis and Endothelial Activation; Chapter 5: Nonimmune Factors in the Etiology of Graft Coronary Arteriosclerosis; Chapter 6: Tissue Remodeling and Extracellular Matrix Proteins; Chapter 7: Insights Regarding the Pathogenesis of Transplant Arteriopathy from Experiments with Animals.
Summary: Cardiac transplantation has had a major impact on the quality of life and longevity of an ever-increasing number of patients. This benefit is significantly eroded by the development of an accelerated form of coronary arterial disease, which shows some, but not all, of the characteristics of native coronary artery disease, and itself is one of the major indications for transplantation.
