The newly updated Interventional Cardiac Catheterization Handbook helps you to effectively perform common therapeutic interventions. This convenient, pocket-sized handbook provides full-color illustrations and videos showcasing up-to-date, step-by-step methods for the most widely practiced interventional cardiology procedures! Review traditional procedures as well as more specialized interventions, including laser angioplasty, atherectomy, and stent implantation. Quickly access the information you need with the help of an easy-to-read outline format, which includes helpful tables and boldfaced key terms. An excellent complement to the 5th Edition of Kern's Cardiac Catheterization Handbook, the Interventional Cardiac Catheterization Handbook is also an ideal review tool for the boards.
