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

Handbook of Left Main Stem Disease
edited by Seung-Jung Park

Handbook of the Left Main Stem Disease examines the pathology, invasive and non-invasive diagnosis, treatment and management of this condition.

Full colour throughout, this timely book features:

  • An extensive focus on the decision to perform, and the practical application of percutaneous coronary interventions, which offer an alternative to the more traditional revascularization by coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG)
  • 120 figures and tables to illustrate and support the text
  • An outstanding array of experienced cathereterization lab contributors

Well supported by published clinical data, Handbook of the Left Main Stem Disease is requisite reading for all interventional cardiologists, whether qualified or in-training.
