Editorial Reviews

Ajay Labroo
Interventional cardiology has undergone a dynamic transformation in the past 5 years. The basic approach of plain old balloon angioplasty for coronary stenosis is now complemented with laser angioplasty, directional and rotational atherectomy, extraction atherectomy, and stents. This book gives an introduction to the above-mentioned procedures along with short- and long-term outcome whenever possible. Chapters on peripheral and cerebral techniques, balloon valvuloplasty, and balloon pericardiotomy and other various techniques supplement this text. The purpose is to provide the neophyte interventionalist an overview of techniques that will commonly be used. Each technique, indications, contraindications, and complications are listed -- data that are relevant for the interventionalist. The book is primarily geared toward fellows in training and possibly for some junior attending staff. However, the target audience may include noninvasive cardiologists, nurses, and technical staff. There are concise descriptive and illustrative sections for the various interventional procedures. Features that make the book unique are chapters in peripheral and cerebral techniques, valvuloplasty, and balloon pericardiotomy. Although many interventionalists may not perform these cases routinely in their practice, some will, and thus these chapters are helpful. I believe this book is an excellent resource and should prove very useful. The authors and co-authors have provided a well-referenced and easy-to-read text about a rapidly changing field. The book will need to be updated rather soon as the actual practice of interventional cardiology is changing. I have also noted several typos that should becorrected.
