describing these studies were published in the Netherlands Heart Journal. They illustrate how combined efforts from different disciplines, using basic and clinical information, can lead to important advances in our knowledge of hereditary cardiovascular disease.
Drs Wilde and Van Tintelen, two internationally recognised leaders in the field of genetically determined cardiovascular disease, brought these articles together in this booklet. It is not only a tribute to the important
contribution from Dutch scientists to this field but also required reading for the clinician who wants (and should!) become better informed about recent advances in this exciting area.
