About the book

Angioplasty is considered an invasive technique developed for cardiovascular disease, such as atherosclerosis which is essentially the accumulation of a fatty substance in arteries. It causes complications when the build-up is so significant that it affects the blood flow through the arteries. The problem is simple, these plaques are capable of clogging an artery possibly preventing certain organs or body parts from receiving the necessary oxygen and nutrients needed for them to perform. This book aims to provide all common techniques and technology in the area of interventional cardiology for individuals considered new to angioplasty and in need of effective guidance to develop decent practices, prevent common drawbacks and become well-organized and self-assured practitioners. Understandable for a wide spectrum of audience, the book is planned to be a relevant source of information for trainees and specialists in the cardiac catheterization technology field.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
