Editorial Reviews

Eric D. Grassman
This text is a description of principles and practices of interventional cardiology. The authors begin with a history of interventional cardiology, then divide the remainder of the text into three sections: basic coronary anatomy and the coagulation process; devices; and clinical issues. It appears that the purpose is to provide non-physician health practitioners the principles and practices of interventional cardiology. The objectives are worthy and quite important in this very complicated field. I believe the objectives have been met quite thoroughly. From the preface it appears that the book is written primarily for nurses and other healthcare providers and non-physicians practicing in the cardiac catheterization lab. The authors do not specifically state that the textbook is for non-physicians, but that is the inference of the preface. The authors are definitely credible authorities. The principal author appears to have considerable experience in the overall field of medical and obstetrics nursing. The co-author is a physician and is the Director of Cardiology at the Washington Hospital Center. The contents include a history of coronary angioplasty and basic principles of interventional cardiology including atherosclerosis, restenosis, and the coagulation scheme. An excellent feature is the large number of tables and illustrations which compliment the text. If there is any shortcoming it is that this is somewhat of a repetition of numerous other texts on interventional cardiology. However, these other textbooks are primarily for physicians and this book is intended for non-physician healthcare providers. This book is a concise but fairly complete review of interventional cardiologyfor healthcare providers who assist interventional cardiologists in performing coronary and peripheral angioplasty. The authors cover the basic science of coagulation and atherosclerosis and numerous clinical trials thoroughly, yet in a very readable style. The soft cover and relatively small size make this an easy reference to use.
