Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Keith G Hickey, MD, BS (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This is the 7th edition in the 30-year history of this book on cardiac catheterization. The former structure has been retained, but the emphasis has been shifted from the use of the cardiac catheter as a diagnostic tool towards a therapeutic one, based on new interventional techniques. A DVD-ROM containing cases covering a broad range of findings accompanies the book.
Purpose: The authors have provided a comprehensive, balanced, and up-to-date resource in invasive and interventional cardiology. This book is all-inclusive and provides readers with valuable information in every imaginable aspect of cardiac catheterization.
Audience: It is intended to serve as a comprehensive educational resource for trainees and practitioners in invasive and interventional cardiology.
Features: The book is divided into eight sections, which are subdivided into chapters written by the various expert coauthors. Sections are devoted to general principles, basic techniques, hemodynamic principles, basic and special angiographic, catheter and interventional techniques, the evaluation of cardiac function, and profiles of specific disorders. The book also contains a table of contents of each of the DVD cases. As a bonus, the author has made the DVD cases transferable to personal computers for use in educational lectures.
Assessment: This book is the leader in the field. It is an essential component of the library of an invasive cardiologist.
