Coronary Interventions

Given the prevalence of heart conditions in modern populations, new techniques for treating patients are highly warranted. This book will be required reading for researchers and healthcare practitioners, as it offers assessments of complications, the new transradial approach and an overview of drug-eluting stents. A special focus on percutaneous coronary interventions is evident, from chapters on pharmacotherapy, its relevance to 30-day mortality and the CANADA score, besides the treatment of patients with saphenous vein graft disease. Other treatment protocols addressed include therapeutic hypothermia and the drug-eluting balloon, cardiac postconditioning to limit cell death following myocardial infarction and rotablation in the drug-eluting Syent era. There is also a chapter on using contrast medium-induced nephropathy gram-iodine/GFR ratio to predict CIN.
