Experienced clinical researchers offer their expertise and insights regarding the clinical application of new devices and treatment strategies for dealing with difficult clinical problems in interventional cardiology. They discuss advanced diagnostic methods such as intravascular ultrasound imaging and percutaneous coronary angioscopy, new therapeutic technologies such as coronary and saphenous vein graft stents and anterectomy, and therapeutic strategies for particularly difficult cases such as reducing coronary restenosis after angioplasty and salvaging failed coronary angioplasty.
