Medical book from C.H.I.P.S.

Primary Angioplasty
Mechanical Interventions for Acute Myocardial Infarction
Second edition
edited by
David Antoniucci

This Second Edition of Primary Angioplasty: Mechanical Interventions for Acute Myocardial Infarction provides an update on the rationale, techniques, and effectiveness of direct percutaneous mechanical revascularization for acute myocardial infarction.

Through the use of “real world” methods, clinical perspectives, and mechanical support, this comprehensive resource guides interventional cardiologists and trainees through the angioplasty process safely and effectively.

New to the Second Edition is an interactive DVD component that includes 47 video clips of the case studies featured in the text. Each case study is also available in PowerPoint format, enabling clinicians to easily create dynamic presentations.

Innovative and clearly presented, this text:

  • includes coverage of the special needs of diabetic, elderly, and female patients
  • explores stenting, thrombectomy, atherectomy, and other techniques
  • discusses venous and arterial grafts, multivessel intervention, and aneurysmatic arteries
