The Second Edition of Primary Angioplasty provides an update on the rationale, techniques, and effectiveness of direct percutaneous mechanical revascularization for acute myocardial infarction. Through the use of "real world" methods, clinical perspectives, and mechanical support, this comprehensive resource guides interventional cardiologists and trainees through the angioplasty process safely and effectively.
