This is a comprehensive, illustrated, state-of-the-art, evidence-based reference on the transradial approach to treatment of cardiovascular disease, edited by worldwide experts. The purpose is to provide a complete, illustrated reference on the anatomy, complications, pitfalls, diagnostic, and interventional strategies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease using the transradial approach. This book is appropriate for clinicians who perform invasive coronary angiography and interventions, including cardiologists, interventionists, technicians, and research scholars. The editors, who summarize more than 200 publications about transradial access, are well known for their contribution to the education of young operators. It starts with a historical perspective, then discusses access techniques and complications, patient selection and specific equipment used during diagnostic and interventional procedures. It also addresses strategies for approaching challenging cases, how to manage complications, and presents an overview of special patient populations, including those of advanced age or with prior coronary artery bypass grafting. This will be a valuable aid for clinicians who perform diagnostic or interventional angiography on a daily basis.
This title includes an access code for an accompanying website with interactive ebook.
