    Summary: This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview of clinical and research aspects of cardiac repolarization geared toward practicing cardiologists and physicians. It analyzes elements of pathophysiology and molecular biology as they relate to the clinical aspects of cardiac repolarization, long QT syndromes, early repolarization syndromes, and special cardiac repolarization syndromes. Each chapter examines different aspects of the field with basic and clinical overviews and highlights the impact on medical management. The book covers a variety of repolarization topics including the influence of the autonomic system, racial and gender differences in patients, the future role of stem cells, inflammation and autoimmunity, and cardiovascular risk. Cardiac Repolarization: Basic Science and Clinical Management is an essential resource for physicians and related professionals, residents, fellows, and graduate students in cardiology, clinical cardiac electrophysiology, internal medicine, and cardiovascular biology.
