Percutaneous cardiac interventions
Tips and tricks of new techniques beyond stenting
Innovation in interventional cardiology extends well beyond coronary stenting.
Most of new technical advances will be incorporated soon in our curriculum for training interventional cardiologists. At the same time, most currently accredited interventionalists will need to incorporate these new developments in their catheterisation laboratories. The issue facing these physiciens today is how to gain experience in new techniques and what can be done to make their learning curve as short as possible.
The aim of this work is to provide the reader with a book that is at the same time both clinicat and yet practically oriented, covering interventional techniques of special interest to the interventionalist, and focusing on those common problems/dilemmas that beset the cathlab operator. The primary goal is to describe those "tips and tricks" that corne from a seasoned operator's experience, using their point-of-view to illuminate the learning process of these new technologies which go beyond stenting in a way that is clear, precise and relevant... somethingthe reader will notfind in the average textbook. The content of each chapter includes an introduction to the device or anatomical problem, a step-by-step description of the procedure - fully illustrated - followed by a description of potentiel risks and complications as well as methods of preventing or treating them.
