Following approximately 40 years of intensive and successful research in malignant hyperthermia, time has come to publish a book containing a current overview of all relevant aspects of malignant hyperthermia. Selected experts provide reviews on their respective fields of interest. The discussed topics include: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, Genetics, Receptor Biology, Treatment, Human Stress Syndrome, Histology and Malignant Neuroleptic Syndrome. Furthermore, in the last years a number of alternative test substances for the in-vitro contracture test, like ryanodine or 4-cloro-m-cresol, were introduced, and new methods for diagnosing malignant hyperthermia, like nuclear magnet resonance spectroscopy, have been developed. The experiences with the contracture test modifications and the results from testing with new methods are presented and discussed.
