The field of interventional cardiovascular medicine continues to rapidly evolve in both the diagnostic and therapeutic arenas. Over the past decade, substantial advances have been made on many fronts, including the development and utilization of techniques and devices for intravascular and intracardiac imaging, percutaneous hemodynamic support, newer drug-eluting stents, drug-coated balloons, and percutaneous valve repair and replacement. The evolution of newer drugs and devices challenges the cardiologist to stay abreast of cutting-edge pharmacological and mechanical strategies for optimal patient care. The second edition of Cardiovascular Catheterization and Intervention: A Textbook of Coronary, Peripheral, and Structural Heart Disease aims to provide clinicians with comprehensive guidance on the preprocedural, procedural, and postprocedural aspects of coronary, peripheral, and structural heart disease interventions. The text features evidence-based discussions on patient selection, vascular access, general principles of interventional cardiology, and postprocedure management of these patients; it also serves as a comprehensive, easily accessible reference for busy practitioners and cardiovascular trainees. Of foremost importance, the topic areas covered are relevant to the daily practice of interventional cardiology.
The book begins with several chapters dedicated to key concepts associated with cardiac catheterization and interventional cardiovascular medicine. The subsequent chapters focus on hemodynamic assessment and coronary angiography in general and in specific situations, such as those in pediatric patients and in adults with congenital heart disease. The bulk of the text addresses coronary and noncoronary interventions, including structural heart disease interventions. Finally, we have included dedicated chapters on credentialing and organizing prehospital and hospital systems that focus on cardiovascular care. A large number of highquality illustrations make this textbook particularly attractive to the practitioner. Essential to the quality and appropriateness of the text is the expertise of the chapter authors. We are fortunate to have assembled a stellar roster of interventional cardiovascular experts to create this book. The contributing authors from leading medical centers around the world have collectively performed hundreds of thousands of procedures and have published thousands of peer-reviewed manuscripts. We are greatly indebted to them. The practice of interventional cardiovascular medicine is exciting, rewarding, and a privilege that each of us enjoys. Likewise, it has been our personal honor to work with these superb contributors, our colleagues in interventional cardiology, as well as the editorial team at CRC Press. It is our hope that you will enjoy this book and that it will be a valuable resource to you in providing the highest quality of care to your patients.
