Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography remain key tools in the management of patients with coronary heart disease. Although this is the most frequently used method of coronary revascularization, general training in cardiology rarely offers more than the opportunity to assist a more senior operator to perform angioplasty procedures. This textbook, covering key procedures and fully revised and updated to include the latest trials, technology, and new techniques, is essential reading. The Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology, 2nd edition spans the whole spectrum of interventional cardiology procedures, including a novel section on the future of interventional cardiology, and multiple new chapters covering special devices in percutaneous coronary intervention. Written by an expert team of international authors, this book offers guidance on all aspects of interventional cardiology according the European curriculum, and covers the evidence-based guidelines for a comprehensive view of the field.
