This highly illustrated textbook has been prepared by the Working Group on Development, Anatomy and Pathology of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). The ESC Textbook of Cardiovascular Development is the authority on cardiovascular development from a perspective of both basic scientists and clinicians.
The embryonic origin of congenital heart diseases and their pathology has been analysed in depth. Modern concepts pivotal to the understanding of cardiovascular morphogenesis, including those still subject to controversy, have been highlighted and the content covers the ESC Core Curriculum.
The textbook will appeal to researchers and clinicians from a wide spectrum of disciplines including molecular and developmental biologists working on mechanisms of heart development in a range of model organisms as well as pathologists, morphologists, geneticists, and cardiologists.

• Contains over 70 full-colour illustrations throughout to aid understanding
• Prepared by the Working Group on Development, Anatomy and Pathology of the ESC
• Modern concepts pivotal to the understanding of cardiovascular morphogenesis highlighted
• Linked to the ESC Core Curriculum

José M. Pérez-Pomares obtained his PhD in Biological Sciences at the University of Málaga in 2000, and was post-doctoral fellow at the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Medical University of South Carolina until 2002. He is now a professor at the Deparment of Animal Biology at the University of Malage and is the chair of Nucleus (board) of the Working Group on Development, Anatomy and Pathology of the European Society of Cardiology. As PI of the Cardiovascular Development & Disease (DeCA) research group, Dr. Pérez-Pomares is interested in the developmental bases of cardiovascular disease, and the team aims at identifying new diagnostic and prognostic markers as well as therapeutical targets and advanced therapies to treat the diseased heart. He is author of 10 book chapters and more than 60 publications in peer-reviewed, international journals.
