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

Interventional Cardiology
Principles and Practice
edited by Carlo Di Mario

Interventional Cardiology: Principles and Practice provides comprehensive guidance to best practices and optimal patient care.

The book emphasizes material selection and angiographic setup for the full range of procedures. Comprehensive chapters address how to approach complex coronary lesions, such as chronic total occlusions, bifurcations, and unprotected left main lesions.

An accompanying DVD presents 33 clinical cases to guide readers through the most common challenges.
