Useful reference manual for all cardiologists, particularly those in training, who face life-threatening complications of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions on a day-to-day basis
Authored by experienced cardiologists with a track record in patient safety
A valuable, practical, and most of all readable resource for the interventional cardiologist with comprehensive and detailed illustrations
Few medical procedures have evolved as dramatically or as quickly as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). From its initial conception, PCI has evolved to become a very complex procedure. Each year in the United States well over 1,000,000 percutaneous coronary intervention procedures are performed.
However as the volume and complexity of the procedures being performed has increased, so has the potential for procedural error leading to life-threatening complications. Knowledge of what complications can occur during PCI and how to deal with them is vital for the practicing cardiologist, and can mean the difference between life and death.
Complications of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: The Survival Handbook aims to serve as a reference manual for all cardiologists, particularly those in training, who face life-threatening complications of PCI on a day-to-day basis. Drawing on the background and experience of cardiologists from both sides of the Atlantic, the book aims to be a valuable, practical, and most of all readable resource for the interventional
cardiologist. The principles and practices described in the book will be of
interest to all practitioners of interventional catheter procedures, including interventional radiologists, vascular surgeons, and cardiologists.
