Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases such as angina, dyspnea on exertion, and congestive heart failure. This pocketbook focuses on the practical aspects of cardiac catheterization and interventions including indications, periprocedural medications and techniques, interpretation of results, and the prevention and treatment of periprocedural complications. Written by highly respected European experts within the field of cardiology, this comprehensive but concise guide includes key references covering randomized clinical trials in each chapter, and follows the European Society of Cardiology guidelines. This book will appeal to cardiologists, trainees, and all related healthcare professionals who are involved in catheterization procedures.
