Textbook of Interventional Cardiology / Edition 3

Fifty-three contributions provide up-to- date, clinically-oriented coverage of the latest techniques, devices, and adjunctive therapies related to percutaneous coronary revascularization, as well as critiques of emerging therapeutic approaches. In this edition, there is new or expanded coverage of drug-coated stents, inflammation and arterial injury, angiogenesis, percutaneous bypass surgery, device genomics, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, stem cell therapy for ischemic heart disease, prophylactic aspirin use, detection of vulnerable plaque, the amplified impact of non-coronary interventions, improvements in adjunctive pharmacotherapy, and current material on congenital heart disease and restenosis. Illustrated with color and b&w images. Edited by Eric J. Topol of The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
