Overview

Whether you are an accomplished interventional cardiologist who needs specific information on a particular topic, a physician who is referring patients for interventions, or a member of the patient care team who wants a better understanding of the current state of interventional cardiology, this concise volume will answer your questions.

Dr. Bernhard Meier assembled an expert team of authors from the world's leading centers to summarize the current best practice of the most important aspects of interventional cardiology. Their chapters are organized in four main sections:

Coronary Artery Disease - features extensive discussion of PCI and stents, as well as an objective review of approaches to chronic total occlusion and end-stage coronary artery disease

Noncoronary Interventions - examines percutaneous replacement of the aortic valve, closure of atrial shunts, carotid artery stenting, and alcohol ablation of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Treatment of Left Ventricular Failure - covers biventricular pacing, percutaneous left ventricular assist devices, and the questions surrounding stem cell therapy

Cardiovascular Imaging - identifies magnetic resonance as the recognized technique of the future and review the value of computed tomography and intravascular imaging

Generously illustrated throughout, and written with insight and foresight, Current Best Practice in Interventional Cardiology provides an excellent overview of the field.
