MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Complications of Cardiovascular Procedures provides interventional cardiologists, endovascular interventionalists, and physicians in training with a comprehensive resource on the prevention and management of complications in interventional cardiology. The book focuses specifically on risk factors, prevention, and management with conventional and/or with bailout techniques and devices. It includes many images of common and rare complications and of devices.

The first section, on general principles, includes quality assurance, training requirements, legal considerations, adjunctive pharmacotherapy, and conscious sedation. Subsequent sections cover general complications of invasive procedures and complications of specific coronary interventions, noncoronary cardiac interventions, peripheral vascular procedures, pediatric interventions, and electrophysiology procedures.

A companion website includes videos of over 30 complications and bailout techniques.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Average Rating 

Complications of Cardiovascular Procedures, edited by Mauro Moscucci, MD, is the closest thing we have to a comprehensive compendium of complications in cardiology. Whereas most texts present complications as an afterthought, complications and their prevention are the focus here, with only brief overviews of the procedures to place the complications in context. The book’s 629 pages appears intimating at first glance, before you realize that the chapters are well-illustrated, the sections succinct, and the tables frequent. The mark of good editing is bringing together the content from multiple distinguished contributors into a unified style, and Moscucci makes each chapter read as though it were written by the same author…It is very apparent that the author and contributors meticulously planned the structure of the book and executed it effectively. (The book) provides a clear-headed summary of what can happen in the cath lab, how to manage it if it happens, and how to prevent it from happening again.  For the experienced cardiologist, the book serves as an illustrated teaching tool, a review of the grading systems and prevention techniques of complications, and a toolbox of expert techniques for rescue. For the starting interventional fellow, reading this book may not be sufficient to pass the Interventional Cardiology Boards, but is a good start to safely performing interventions independently. For cath lab staff, the book provides expertise on preparing the lab for complications, with processes that make it run safer and equipment that is needed for the unexpected.”
