Within the field cardiovascular medicine, interventional cardiology has evolved rapidly in the last decade. In particular, there are advanced therapeutic valvular interventions that compare to historical outcomes with surgical approaches. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement may soon become the standard of care, and transcatheter mitral valve interventions continue to develop rapidly. In addition, improvements in drug-eluting stent technology continue to improve long-term outcomes.
Keeping in mind of these rapid advances in interventional cardiology, we have put together this color atlas and synopsis of interventional cardiology to enable medical students, postgraduate physician trainees, practicing clinicians, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, internal medicine physicians, and general practitioners so that they can rapidly assimilate information on a wide variety of interventional cardiology related topics.
This practical, highly clinical resource fills the need in the literature for an interventional cardiology reference that provides expert textual guidance on patient diagnosis and management, along with a comprehensive collection of images (many in full color) illustrating specific procedures.
•Logically divided into four sections: The Hemodynamic Study, Percutaneous Coronary Interventions, Non-Coronary Cardiac Interventions, and Peripheral Interventions
•Strong focus on normal anatomy, radiographic anatomy, indications, contraindications, interpretations, and patient management
•Most chapters begin with a case scenario, putting the issue into clinical, real-world perspective.
This beautifully illustrated, concisely written resource is perfect for busy cardiologists of all specialties who require broad coverage of the topic in a convenient, quick-access presentation.
