Through research and treatment, interventional cardiology has played a vital role in improving the health and quality of life of many patients, relieving symptoms, allowing patients to become more active, and easing the burden on surgeons. Providing a systematic, state-of-the-art update, An Atlas of Interventional Cardiology explores leading-edge treatment from the frontlines in the battle against heart disease.
Professor Meier draws upon one of the world's finest collections of illustrative material to demonstrate the practical application of interventional procedures in managing coronary artery disease. Focusing on ten primary procedures, the author, joined by an expert team of contributors, describes the key stages of each procedure, the possible complications and contra-indications, and how they should be managed. Additional tables and diagrams support the text and present the reader with a 'master class' on the most important techniques, given by the world's leading authorities in the field. These features make An Atlas of Interventional Cardiology the most authoritative, useful, and current resource on this subject you can find.
