Description

A comprehensive survey of nonsurgical treatment for a variety of heart diseases that affect the cardiac valves, the heart muscle, and the structure of the heart. The authors describe who these procedures are useful for, how to do them, and how well they work. Major topics of discussion include percutaneous techniques for valvular heart disease, septal defects at both the atrial and ventricular levels, adjunctive therapies during coronary interventions, and angioplasty to treat extracardiac vascular disease, as well as reviews of the cutting-edge imaging modalities now being used in interventional procedures. An accompanying CD-ROM contains video demonstrations of catheterization and and the imaging portions of these procedures.show more

Back cover copy

Cardiac therapy using catheter-based techniques now accounts for more than 10% of the therapeutic procedures performed in cardiac catheterization laboratories today and is rapidly growing in importance. In Interventional Cardiology: Percutaneous Noncoronary Intervention, prominent practitioners and investigators describe all of the methods used to perform noncoronary procedures in interventional cardiology, as well as their results. Major topics of discussion include percutaneous techniques for valvular heart disease, septal defects at both the atrial and ventricular levels, adjunctive therapies during coronary interventions, and angioplasty to treat extracardiac vascular disease, as well as reviews of the cutting-edge imaging modalities now being used in interventional procedures. Among the highlights are a new treatment for aortic stenosis with a stented percutaneously inserted aortic valve, advances in the treatment of regurgitant valvular disease, closure devices for atrial and ventricular septal defects, and new percutaneous mechanical assist devices for myocardial infarction and cardiogenic shock. An accompanying CD-ROM contains video demonstrations of catheterization and the imaging portions of these procedures. Authoritative and state-of-the-art, Interventional Cardiology: Percutaneous Noncoronary Intervention defines a new field within interventional cardiology with its comprehensive description of who is suitable for such treatment, how to perform all the nonsurgical treatments for a variety of heart diseases, and how well they work.show more
