Update in Interventional Cardiology

by Ashwin B Mehta, Nihar Mehta, Rahul Chhabria

The branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases is known as interventional cardiology. Perhaps no other discipline in medicine has seen such galloping strides as the field of interventional cardiology has. So fast is the evolution of the technology that it is difficult to keep pace with it. By the time you follow the recommended guidelines, the guidelines become obsolete in the light of new knowledge. Interventions in chronically occluded vessels, development of bioabsorbable stents—a new era, and intravascular imaging have changed the pattern of our practice. The purpose of this book “Update in Interventional Cardiology” is manifold. It attempts at providing clear understanding of techniques from basic to beyond—to lay down principles that could allow the highest standards of safety and efficacy. This book is comprises of total 24 chapters. This book attempts to emphasize the key points encompassing tips and tricks to fine-tune the skills of an interventional cardiologist. With chapters on complications and high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), the authors hope to provide wherewithal to bail out of a dreadful situation. The authors have poured in their years of experience to familiarize the reader with several practical methods of performing and troubleshooting the usual and unusual situations in the cathlab. In nutshell, the book will help in decision-making and executing the decisions in the cathlab.
