Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Eric D. Grassman, M.D., Ph.D.(Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive textbook of interventional cardiology is titled Practical Interventional Cardiology to emphasize the practical approach it takes to its topics. The previous edition was published in 1997.
Purpose: The purpose appears to be to update the first edition with the many changes that have occurred in interventional cardiology since 1997. These are certainly worthy objectives because of the rapid changes in the technology of percutaneous coronary intervention. I believe the authors did meet their objectives.
Audience: The book is written for interventional cardiologists and interventional cardiology fellows. The editors and chapter authors are world renowned interventional cardiologists.
Features: The book covers all aspects of interventional cardiology, including coronary intervention, pharmaceutical adjuncts, nonangiographic imaging, physiologic measurement of coronary flow, valvuloplasty, intervention in congenital heart disease, ablation of arrhythmias, audit in interventions, and training of interventional cardiologists. The book's emphasis is on practical descriptions of interventional cardiology. It does this while still thoroughly covering the multitude of clinical trials forming the basis of modern interventions. The book has very readable black-and-white glossy figures.
Assessment: The book is well written, concise, and contemporary. Its unique quality is the practical description of how modern intervention is performed. It is comprehensive, covering noncoronary intervention as well. It does overlap and repeat information in other books, such as Textbook of Interventional Cardiology, 3rd edition, by Topol ( W.B. Saunders, 1999) and The Practice of Interventional Cardiology, 2nd Edition, by Vogel and King (Mosby, 1993).

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher
'A well-produced book with excellent reproduction of angiographic and illustrative material ... represents a comprehensive and admirably well-presented description of interventional cardiology.' - British Journal of Cardiology (of the first edition)

'The second edition of Ever Grech's and David Ramsdale's book is excellent and has matured considerably from their already excellent first volume. This is a worthy source of detailed information and appropriate references and would sit very well on the shelf next to Colombo's CD-ROMS of cases.' - Cardiology News
