Continued advances in cardiology have led to unprecedented scientific progress in recent years. However, no matter how advanced the science, the successful application of interventional cardiology relies upon a practitioner's ability to approach interventional techniques competently and confidently in every situation.

Fully updated and featuring new chapters and additional tips and tricks, this latest edition of Dr Nguyen, Colombo, Hu, Grines, and Saito's celebrated book provides a complete yet concise guide to practical interventional cardiology that deserves a place in every cardiac laboratory. Culled from the personal experience of over fifty international experts, the book incorporates more than 500 practical tips and tricks for performing interventional cardiovascular procedures. Each strategic or tactical move is graded by complexity level and described in a simple, step-by-step approach that includes guidance on how to overcome practical difficulties, providing a comprehensive resource that can benefit both beginner or experienced operators.

As well as covering the latest developments in interventional cardiology, this third edition includes technical tips that promote user-friendly performance, low complication rates, cost- and time-efficient approaches and cost- and time-effective selection of devices to help optimize the practice of modern interventional cardiology.
