About the book

The book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the most important aspects of myocardial infarction from pathophysiological and clinical points of view. The goal is to present the main clinical problems concerning myocardial infarction, but also to highlight cutting-edge research and novel advances in the pathophysiological understanding of myocardial infarction. It will include topics that venture into molecular and cellular signaling and mechanisms that play roles in the build-up of coronary artery atherosclerotic plaques and microvascular coronary dysfunction, as well as roles in perpetuating damage during myocardial infarction and after the acute ischaemic event. Electrophysiological changes and arrhythmias are going to be explored, as are details of the clincal presentation, symptoms, diagnostic procedures and possibilities of both interventional treatment, as well as pharmacological treatment. Both topic areas of current pharmacological options and recommendations and of potential future pharmacological and interventional targets are encouraged. The book seeks to include not only an up-to date overview of the best possible care and follow up of patients suffering from myocardial infarction, but also to give insight into visions of potential future scientific advancements in the fields of diagnostic and therapeutic endeavors, aimed at improving prognosis and quality of life.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
