Practical Interventional Cardiology

Author: Ever D. Grech
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 9781498735117
Release Date: 2017-09-25
Genre: Medical

This new and comprehensively revised third edition of Practical Interventional Cardiology, led by an eminent UK Cardiologist and supported by contributing authors from around the world, discusses the different interventional procedures by context and addresses current guidelines and ongoing trials, including European experience with non-FDA approved devices. It represents an extended practical reference for the Interventional Cardiologist, Fellows in training, catheter laboratory Nursing and Technical staff as well as the non-invasive Cardiologist and General Physician. Rather than providing detailed and exhaustive reviews – a criticism of many Interventional Cardiology texts – the purpose of this book is to present practical information regarding Interventional procedures and important topics in Cardiology. An emphasis on clarity, clinical relevance and up-to-date information has been favoured as well as discussion of points of controversy so frequently overlooked."

Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology

Author: Simon Redwood
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199569083
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Medical

Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography remain the key tools in the management of patients with coronary heart disease. Interventional cardiology is now routinely performed outside of major cardiac centres, often in small district hospitals. General training in cardiology rarely offers more than the opportunity to assist a more senior operator to perform angioplasty procedures, so a textbook for the non-specialist has become essential reading. Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology is a definitive text spanning the whole spectrum of interventional cardiology procedures, including management of patients with coronary artery disease, one of the leading killers in western society. Written by an expert faculty of international authors, it offers guidance on all aspects of interventional cardiology according to the European curriculum and guidelines for practice, and covers the very latest techniques and devices to provide practical, evidence-based guidance on treating a full range of coronary lesions. The book also covers structural heart disease and new developments in heart valve disease, which were previously in the realm of cardiac surgeons but are now being treated by cardiologists using less invasive methods.

ISBN: 9781475730364
Release Date: 2013-03-14
Genre: Medical

A comprehensive review by renowned authorities of the many exciting developments occurring across the rapidly emerging field of "minimally invasive" or "minimal access" cardiac surgery. The book's distinguished panel of contributors presents the interventional cardiologists perspective, spells out the key factors for success in beating-heart coronary bypass grafting through limited incisions, and surveys the various methods of harvesting the internal thoracic artery. Other topics treated include immobilization of the surgical field, minimal access valve and congenital surgery, alternative methods of anastomosis, and port-access coronary bypass grafting. Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery summarizes all the latest findings on the powerful new techniques, as well as the results, of minimally invasive coronary surgery, including valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and coronary revascularization.

Percutaneous Interventions in Women An Issue of Interventional Cardiology Clinics E Book

Genre: Medical

Heart disease is the leading cause of death among US women over the age of 65, resulting in more deaths than all forms of cancer combined. Women are less likely to survive heart attacks than are men, possibly because symptoms in women may differ and may be less recognizable. In addition, women consistently tend to have worse clinical outcomes in percutaneous coronary interventions than do men. For these reasons, an issue on percutaneous interventions in women is timely.

Genre: Medical

This textbook is a readily accessible educational tool for all fellows undertaking subspecialty training in interventional cardiology, while also serving as a refresher to early career interventional cardiologists. The key objective is to equip the reader with an evidence-based expert-led resource focussed primarily on pre-procedural planning, peri-procedural decision-making, and the salient technical aspects of performing safe and effective coronary intervention, the intention being to support the therapeutic decision-making process in the emergency room, coronary care unit or cath lab in order to optimize patient outcome. The Interventional Cardiology Training Manual provides readers with a step-by-step guide to the basic principles underpinning coronary intervention and facilitates rapid access to best practice from the experts, presented in a pragmatic, digestible and concise format. Uniquely, each chapter has been written in a heart center-specific manner, affording the reader an opportunity to learn how individual institutions perform a specific procedure, which algorithms and guidelines they follow and what evidence they draw on to instigate the best possible care for their patients.

STEMI Interventions An issue of Interventional Cardiology Clinics E Book

Genre: Medical

In ST segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI), the coronary artery is completely blocked by a blood clot. It is the most serious type of heart attack. The best treatment for STEMI patients is to have the blocked artery opened by balloon inflation within 90 minutes of arriving at a hospital. The 90-minute window is called “door-to-balloon time. The shorter the door-to-balloon time, the greater the chance of survival. Treatment of this life-threatening illness is reviewed in this issue.
