A comprehensive text on all aspects of the practice of cardiac catheterization, for physicians at all levels of training who care for patients with cardiovascular disease, refer patients for cardiac catheterization, and/or perform catheterization. The volume is divided into six sections: introduction; catheterization laboratory organization, administration, and related issues; general cardiac catheterization--application to both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures; diagnostic catheterization techniques; coronary and noncoronary therapeutic (interventional) catheterization techniques; and specific clinical states and their assessment and intervention by catheter techniques.
