Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaenous Interventions:

  • Contains 180 black and white and 20 color pictures, and 75 line figures
  • Draws on the experience of experts to present a clear picture of cardiac catheterization
  • Includes the latest information on drug eluting stents, imaging, and cardiac flow
  • Covers how to analyze good and bad results, and many more standard routines
Training and experience are the foundation on which an accomplished interventionalist stands.

No book can supplant this foundation, but in Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaenous Interventions the authors provide a practical text that creates confidence in performing percutaneous coronary and peripheral intervention.

Cardiac Catheterization and Percutaenous Interventions addresses the basics (things you wouldn't dare to ask), the pitfalls (problems to avoid before you start), the proven approaches (facts you are expected to know), and the new innovations (techniques you will want to be first to perfect).
