Interventional Cardiology is an extensive, richly illustrated guide to this field of medicine. The book is edited by internationally recognised experts, led by Professor Samir Kapadia.

This book provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of interventional cardiology, across five sections, further divided into 88 chapters. The first section covers the evolution periprocedural pharmacology, beginning with chapters on the history of coronary intervention and concluding with clinical cases. The second section covers specific coronary interventions, taking either a disease-based or an anatomical approach. The chapters also provide information on individual patient groups, such as the elderly and diabetics. Detailed chapters on a range of devices used in interventional cardiology are included in this section.

Further sections cover a wide range of peripheral and structural interventions, and the final chapter on general topics includes radiation protection, prevention and management of bleeding, and haemodynamic essentials. Enhanced by 700 full colour images, Interventional Cardiology is an authoritative resource for all cardiologists.
