This second edition of the Atlas of Interventional Cardiology is a reflection of the most recent advances and changes in both techniques and devices. This atlas includes an overview of the coronary arterial response to injury as well as invasive lesion assessment, specifically coronary physiologic assessment and intravascular ultrasound. General techniques and equipment selection are also presented, including emphasis on the evolution of stent design. The salient features relevant to interventional cardiology practice are presented through brilliant images accompanied by detailed text.
With more than 500 illustrations, clinical photographs, instructive diagrams, and charts, this updated reference covers a wide range of topics, including distal protection devices, invasive lesion assessment, peripheral arterial interventions, and extraction atherectomy. Diagnosis and treatment guidance is presented to the reader through a lesion-specific approach that covers both technical and cognitive aspects.
