Description: This third edition of a concise review of topics in interventional cardiology is an extension of the author's The Cardiac Catheterization Handbook, 5th edition (Elsevier, 2011), elaborating on the basics and most up-to-date techniques and methods.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the most relevant and critical information to those who are getting started on their path in interventional cardiology. Due to the myriad of tools, techniques, methods, and angiographic subsets available, a concise manual definitely has its place in the toolbox of the budding interventional cardiologist.
Audience: With its main focus on intervention, this handbook is aimed at aspiring interventional cardiologists.
Features: From the basics of percutaneous coronary angiography and arterial and venous access to more advanced areas such as structural heart disease, the handbook offers an easy-to-read and organized format supported with multiple color diagrams and images. In addition, an online supplement complements the chapters with multiple videos of cases with audio explanations.
Assessment: With continuous updates in the field of interventional cardiology, it is great to have an up-to-date handbook that can be quickly referenced prior to performing a procedure in the cath lab. Its high production quality and excellent diagrams and images set it apart from other similar handbooks. Every interventional and diagnostic fellow interested in intervention should own this book.
