Oxford Textbook of Interventional Cardiology

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.

Coronary artery disease (CAD) causes severe disability and more death than any other disease in affluent societies, including cancer. The medical conditions associated with it are angina, ischaemia, unstable angina, myocardial infarction, arrhythmias, heart failure and sudden death. Choosing the appropriate investigation to confirm a diagnosis helps to assess risk and determine the correct treatment path. GPs also need to know the effective life-style and risk-factor modifications in addition to advocating the best medical therapy.

Interventional Cardiology

Genre: Medical

Interventional cardiology refers to catheter-based treatment of cardiovascular diseases. This dynamic new field is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine. In the United States, more than a million percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) are performed annually; moreover, the number of procedures performed will likely continue to increase. The field of interventional cardiology has evolved dramatically over the past decade with the availability of embolic protection devices, drug eluting stents, mechanical thrombectomy catheters, etc. Interventional cardiology represents a rapidly moving target for the cardiologist who seeks to integrate recent advances into their clinical practice. The advent of newer technology presents both an opportunity as well as numerous challenges for the cardiologist to treat patients optimally. Interventional Cardiology: Essential Clinicians Guide (Oxford American Cardiology Library) aims to provide clinicians with concise, easily accessible guidance on the pre-procedural, procedural and post procedural aspects of PCI in general situations and in various specific clinical settings. The volume features evidence-based discussion on patient selection, vascular access, general principles of PCI, and various specific settings and optimal post procedure management of these patients. This handbook focuses on tailoring stent type to the individual patient, taking into account specific risk factors and comorbidities, appropriate use of embolic protection and thrombectomy catheters. Highly practical in format, content and style, Interventional Cardiology: Essential Clinician's Guide serves as a succinct, yet comprehensive, easily accessible point-of-care reference for busy practitioners. Useful tools, such as treatment algorithms, charts, tables and illustrations assist in making this volume a practical reference tool.

Practical Interventional Cardiology

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."
