Abstract
A modern definition of health goes beyond the biological dimension to encompass human functionality and well-being. Quality of life is one of the most popular health-related concepts and simultaneously reflects several dimensions of individual health. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) is taken to include physical, psychological, and social aspects of positive well-being as well as negative effects of illness, treatment, and infirmity. Quality of life outcomes are now considered an important indicator of the success of both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. In this book, recognized experts discuss the findings of various studies, including their own, regarding HRQoL in patients with cardiovascular diseases. The impact of the newest forms of medical treatment on well-being is considered in patients with arterial hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, and stroke as well as in patients who have undergone interventional procedures or have implantable cardiac devices. By summarizing established facts and presenting new data, this book will be an invaluable source of information for all practitioners in the field.

Abstract
Modern medicine is increasingly focused on integrating the results of basic scientific research and clinical research, "translational medicine" to provide improved patient care. This collaborative approach which is a "two way street" has proven very useful in various fields in cardiovascular medicine. Translational Vascular Medicine: Pathogenesis, Diagnosis, and Treatment provides extensive information on new and exciting advances in such topics as surgery and non-pharmacological treatments for atherosclerotic disease of the aorta, pulmonary arterial hypertension, cytoprotective mechanisms in the vasculature, and the "Broken Heart Syndrome". The Editors and their expert panel of contributors have explored the bi-directional and integrated approaches of translational cardiovascular medicine, linking basic science to patient care. This book is a highly useful method to understand these complex topics and provides considerable insight into important areas of translational cardiovascular medicine and key bibliographies for the reader.

Abstract
Molecular and Translational Vascular Medicine will serve as a state-of-the-art resource for physicians and translational medical researchers alike who are interested in the rapidly evolving field of vascular medicine. The text provides new insight into the basic mechanisms of classic vascular pathophysiologic processes like angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, and vasculitis. Furthermore, it covers new areas of investigation including the role of the ubiquitin proteasome system in vascular disease, endothelial progenitor cells for disease treatment, and the genetic basis of thoracic aortic aneurysms. Lastly, this volume includes sections on the newly emerging field of therapeutic angiogenesis, and the developing technology of nanoparticle-based imaging and therapeutic treatment of the diseased vasculature. All chapters are written by established experts in their fields, including pathologists, cardiovascular surgeons, and internists as well as translational biomedical researchers in a wide range of disciplines. While comprehensive, the material is presented in a manner that simplifies the complex pathophysiologic mechanisms that underlie common vascular diseases. Molecular and Translational Vascular Medicine will be of great value to a broad audience including internists, cardiovascular and vascular surgeons, pathologists, residents and fellows, as well as translational biomedical researchers.

Abstract
Molecular Genetic Pathology, Second Edition presents up-to-date material containing fundamental information relevant to the clinical practice of molecular genetic pathology. Fully updated in each area and expanded to include identification of new infectious agents (H1N1), new diagnostic biomarkers and biomarkers for targeted cancer therapy. This edition is also expanded to include the many new technologies that have become available in the past few years such as microarray (AmpliChip) and high throughput deep sequencing, which will certainly change the clinical practice of molecular genetic pathology. Part I examines the clinical aspects of molecular biology and technology, genomics. Poharmacogenomics and proteomics, while Part II covers the clinically relevant information of medical genetics, hematology, transfusion medicine, oncology, and forensic pathology. Supplemented with many useful figures and presented in a helpful bullet-point format, Molecular Genetic Pathology, Second Edition provides a unique reference for practicing pathologists, oncologists, internists, and medical genetisists. Furthermore, a book with concise overview of the field and highlights of clinical applications will certainly help those trainees, including pathology residents, genetics residents, molecular pathology fellows, internists, hematology/oncology fellows, and medical technologists in preparing for their board examination/certification.

Abstract
Molecular Pathogenesis and Treatment of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia provides a comprehensive understanding of the recent molecular genetics of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML) and a characterization of the molecular targets for drug development. Included are therapeutic implications, diagnosis, and prognosis for understanding and facilitating daily practice in the management of patients with CML. Understanding of the pathogenesis and therapy of hematological malignancies such as CML has grown significantly in recent years. This development owe much to the progress in molecular biology and now makes a major contribution to diagnosis and to treatment that pharmacologically targets the molecular events of CML. Molecular targeting therapy with newly developed agents such as small molecules and antibodies for hematological malignancies are being discovered after years of research. Some of these, including tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib, nilotinib, and dasatinib, lead to increased survival rates and improved therapies. With the opinion leaders of basic and clinical research in the field as authors, this book reviews recent advances in the biology of CML.

Abstract
Most books on imaging in sports medicine are concerned with the particular joints or anatomy involved in sports-related injuries. This book, however, takes a different perspective by looking at injuries that are associated with specific sports. All of the well-known major sports, such as football, tennis, and basketball, are included, as are many less common but still very popular sports, such as baseball, American football, and rugby. Because the popularity of different sports varies widely from country to country and region to region, this book should be especially useful to radiologists and physicians who are looking for information on injuries related to the sports that are popular where they practice or with which they are not familiar. Imaging plays an important role in every aspect of sport injuries: at diagnosis, follow-up, and return to action. It also plays a role in injury classification and hence helps to predict the time required for full recovery. The chapters on sports-specific injuries are preceded by two chapters on the perspective of clinicians and another two chapters on the general use of MR imaging and ultrasound in sports medicine. The authors of the book are world-renowned experts from five continents. Imaging in Sports-Specific Musculoskeletal Injuries should be of great interest to radiologists, sports medicine physicians, orthopedic surgeons, and rehabilitation physicians, and to anyone interested in the treatment of sports-related in juries.
