NIC Handbook of Interventional Cardiology is a step by step guide to common procedures and problems in interventional cardiology.
Divided into 19 chapters, the book begins with a brief history of coronary interventions, followed by instruction on the use of a range of interventional equipment and techniques. A separate chapter is devoted to bioresorbable vascular scaffolds, a new technology made from a material that can be absorbed by the body. This chapter discusses the need for this technology, the differentiated clinical benefits, potential advantages of metallic stents, and various associated devices.
Further chapters provide step by step guidance on other interventions such as carotid angioplasty and atrial septal defect closure. The final chapter covers the new and rapidly evolving field of nuclear cardiology, including its history, equipment, materials and imaging protocols, making NIC Handbook of Interventional Cardiology ideal for interventional cardiologists who wish to update their knowledge.
