This volume surveys the progress that has been made in the study of coronary angiogenesis and provides the reader with a general coverage of the advances in the core knowledge in the field. It is clear that as we gain a deeper understanding of mechanisms underlying stimulation (and inhibition) of coronary angiogenisis, it might become possible to develop novel therapies for increasing the growth and formation of collateral vessels in the ischemic heart. Although research in the domain of angiogenesis is steadily approaching its golden age, the study of coronary angiogenesis is still in its infancy.
