This book encompasses the understandable fundamental biology of cardiac valve and procedures of CAVD. It also discusses genetics, proteomics and metabolism of CAVD, depicts novel methods in valve tissue engineering and regenerative medicines. This book will facilitate people to know about CAVD and other aspects concerning valve biology. It also emphasizes on the prospective chances of curbing the disease from rising in future.
