About this book


Interventional cardiology is a creative, innovative, and rapidly advancing frontier of cardiology. There has been mind-boggling proliferation of tech­ nology in this field, the use of which requires extraordinary skills and know­ how. In order to keep pace with the innovative genius of interventional cardiologists, it is indeed desirable to have specialty issues updating us on technology-orientated therapeutic procedures. Contemporary interventional cardiology care is a highly specialized art, dependent on critical decision making, selection of the most appropriate inter­ ventional procedure, and the operator possessing extraordinary skills and compassion. This first volume of the new series, Supported Complex and High Risk Cor­ onary Angioplasty, attests to the preceding statement. Dr. Fayaz Shawl has mastered the procedure and has been very thoughtful and innovative in the clinical application of the percutaneous cardiopulmonary bypass support tech­ nique. This book provides to an interventionist the basic principles of car­ diopulmonary bypass, identification of the high risk coronary angioplasty patient, and other alternate support devices for myocardial protection. Dr. Shawl and his team of talented contributors are to be complimented for providing us with this impressive volume on high technology. There will be ongoing specialty issues in this series highlighting the devel­ opments, complications, and advances in interventional cardiology.

' There is an excellent chapter on the identification of high risk patients in which most of the literature related to this topic is covered. For those interested in the perfusion and the preservation of myocardial function during angioplasty, this book has much to offer. ' International Journal of Cardiology 37 1992
