Product description

In 76 chapters, this covers preliminary investigation as well as the latest information on techniques and methods of interventional cardiovascular catheterization. It has a practical "how-to" approach to both established and new techniques and provides a balance between basic science and clinical practice. The text includes discussion of the biology of the arterial wall and atherosclerosis. Topics receiving special attention include: thrombosis and platelet function - fundamentals and drug therapy for the interventionalist; treatment strategies in patients with multivessel disease; coronary artery stenting; and technical practice points. The knowledge of the authors - all authorities in their fields - is expressed both with a review of literature and, where appropriate, through detailed accounts of practical problems and solutions in their experience. Where opinions or approaches differ, both ideas are presented to give the reader a broad insight into the variety of methods that can be used to solve similar problems.
