Review quote

"In addition to its comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of all aspects of CTO intervention, this easy-to-read, practical book serves as a valuable manual that helps novices learn CTO intervention techniques, and allows experienced operators to hone their skills." Rating: 5 Stars--Doody.com, April 4, 2014 "Interventional cardiologists explain a new algorithmic approach to chronic total occlusion (CTO) intervention. Rather than reviewing angiograms and deciding whether a patient should get revascularization, the cardiologist will look at the ischemic burden and the patient's symptoms and use the angioram to determine how best to achieve revascularization. Among the topics are equipment, the retrograde approach, "balloon undilatable" CTOs, stenting CTO lesions..."--ProtoView.com, January 2014
