Cardiovascular Endocrinology and Metabolism: Theory and Practice of Cardiometabolic Medicine discusses the close intersection between metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease, covering the basic science and pathophysiology of disease and the latest research in pharmacological approaches and translational therapeutic options. This book is a valuable resource for the vascular and endocrinology clinical and research communities in need of knowledge and potential outcomes. The global increase in the prevalence of cardiometabolic disorders, and the introduction of therapeutic options for treating metabolic disease that also lower cardiovascular risk, is bringing endocrinologists and cardiologists together in a shared clinical experience.

Key Features

  • Discusses the intersection between metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases
  • Provides a comprehensive understanding of the relevant pathophysiology of diseases as a basis for the evidence-based management of cardiometabolic disorders
  • Offers a comprehensive reference, ranging from basic science and pathophysiology to clinical diagnostics and management


Basic scientists working in translational endocrinology or cardiology, practicing endocrinologists and cardiologists
