Easy to use and follow, Coronary Reperfusion Therapy in Clinical Practice is a practical guide in the clinical application of fibrinolytic therapy, primary coronary angioplasty and their combination in ST segment elevation acute coronary syndrome. Rather than being an encyclopedia of all trials, it presents the current guidelines for physicians taking care of acutely ill patients, whether in intensive care units, coronary care units, ambulances or emergency departments.
Edited by one of the world’s leading experts on reperfusion, this important text fills a gap in the market for modern books devoted specifically to this area.
