A unique combination color atlas and synoptic text on interventional cardiology procedures
Within the field cardiovascular medicine, interventional cardiology has evolved rapidly in the last decade. In particular, there are advanced therapeutic valvular interventions that compare to historical outcomes with surgical approaches. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement may soon become the standard of care, and transcatheter mitral valve interventions continue to develop rapidly. In addition, improvements in drug-eluting stent technology continue to improve long-term outcomes.
Keeping in mind of these rapid advances in interventional cardiology, we have put together this color atlas and synopsis of interventional cardiology to enable medical students, postgraduate physician trainees, practicing clinicians, including physician assistants, nurse practitioners, internal medicine physicians, and general practitioners so that they can rapidly assimilate information on a wide variety of interventional cardiology related topics.
This practical, highly clinical resource fills the need in the literature for an interventional cardiology reference that provides expert textual guidance on patient diagnosis and management, along with a comprehensive collection of images (many in full color) illustrating specific procedures.
Written by clinicians, for clinicians, Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery offers a comprehensive, authoritative, and multidisciplinary approach to this rapidly evolving field. Covering every area relevant to the daily practice of cardiovascular medicine, this new and innovative reference text, led by Drs. Debabrata Mukherjee and Richard A. Lange, brings together a stellar team of cardiovascular specialists from leading medical centers worldwide who focus on cutting-edge strategies for the clinical and surgical management of patients. Both medicine and surgery are highlighted in chapters along with follow-up care and changing technology to equip the clinician for optimal patient care. Highly structured and templated chapters cover pathogenesis, diagnosis, management, special considerations/limitations, follow-up care, and on-going and future research
