    Interventional cardiology refers to the catheter-based treatment of cardiovascular diseases and is one of the fastest growing fields in medicine. This updated text addresses recent advances in structural heart interventions, in particular aortic and mitral valve procedures. The advent of newer technologies presents both opportunities and challenges for the cardiologist to treat patients optimally. Interventional cardiologists are now at the forefront of peripheral and structural heart interventions.

    This new edition focuses on tailoring treatment to individual patients, taking into account specific risk factors and comorbidities, and appropriate use of devices. This second edition also provides useful tools, such as treatment algorithms, evidence tables, charts, tables, and illustrations to enhance the value of this volume as a practical reference tool. The online edition also includes several "how-to" videos.
