Interventional Cardiology
by Spencer B. King III

Interventional Cardiology is the first to focus on interventional cardiovascular procedures.

Interventional Cardiology includes a full section on procedures as well as chapters on the necessary scientific foundation, to which specialists will refer every day in their clinical practice.


  • A first-of-its-kind, in-depth survey of procedural skills for interventional cardiology-edited by two of the foremost experts in the field, and featuring contributions from key opinion leaders in interventional cardiology
  • Top-to-bottom coverage of the latest interventional cardiology techniques
  • Valuable perspectives on avoiding and properly managing complications
  • Up-to-date information on devices
  • An extensive illustration program with four-color images and figures throughout
