Cardiac Catheterization and Imaging (From Pediatrics to Geriatrics)
Cardiac Catheterization and Imaging is an all-encompassing, richly illustrated guide to cardiac catheterisation and catheter-based intervention, from the foetus to the geriatric patient.
The book is divided into 72 chapters across twelve sections, covering everything from the history of cardiac catheterisation, patient preparation, imaging modalities available in preparation and during the procedure, and the equipment required.
Beginning with the history and basics of catheterisation, and a section on haemodynamics, subsequent sections cover a range of interventional techniques for heart disease. Further sections bring the text firmly up to date, with recent techniques in valvular aortic disease covered, a chapter on current indications for interventions in adults with congenital heart disease, and the latest equipment available for cardiovascular support.
Each chapter concerning a specific condition follows a regular format; a concise discussion on the disorder, indications, procedural details, precautions, and potential pitfalls. With nearly 2100 images and illustrations, spanning 1134 pages, Cardiac Catheterization and Imaging is an invaluable, comprehensive resource for cardiologists.
