​​​Multimodality cardiovascular imaging is essential for interventional cardiac procedures and both fields are evolving rapidly. Multimodality Imaging in Cardiac Interventions captures the current state of clinical utility and provides a unique visual aide for teaching, training, and education. The editors have brought together a variety of leading experts from across the United Kingdom to guide the interested viewer in the indications and practicalities of state-of-the-art techniques. This book visually demonstrates the indications and methodology involved in several important cardiac interventions that rely heavily on multimodality cardiovascular imaging for their success. Chapters cover topics such as transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), device closure of paravalvular leaks in the mitral and aortic positions, and the adjunctive use of computed tomographic angiography in percutaneous coronary intervention. Visual simplicity in combination with excellent narration from experts in the field results in a unique up-to-date educational tool. This book will appeal to a wide range of professionals from clinicians to potential patients and the medical press interested in learning about important advances in cardiovascular medicine.

This book introduces classic and unique cases in 3D TEE in structural heart disease interventions. In each all the 40 cases, background information, clinical presentations, and diagnostic findings are present and followed by step-by-step approaches of interventional therapies and outcomes after the procedures. The highlight of the book is to utilize extensive illustrations, over 500, to demonstrate various cardiovascular pathologies. Most of the figures are 3D transesophageal echocardiograms, they are cooperated with 2D transesophageal echocardiograms, X rays, fluoroscopies, computed tomograms, etc. Since the echo images obtained in clinic practice are moving images, it also includes over 300 videos, which serve as a supplement to the static illustrations in this book. The atlas is organized into five chapters. In Chapters one, cases received closure of congenital and acquired cardiac defects are described. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation and its complications are discussed in Chapter two and three. Chapter four details the valve-in-valve therapy. Chapter five covers MitraClip therapy. It offers readers an insider’s view of 3D transesophageal echocardiography in structural heart disease interventions and to refresh their clinical work.

This book presents the percutaneous techniques and technologies most frequently employed in structural interventional cardiology, focusing especially on how to optimize outcomes and minimize risk. Interventional procedures for aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, left atrial appendage closure, patent foramen ovale closure, and closure of interatrial and interventricular defects are clearly presented step by step with the aid of a wealth of images. These descriptions are complemented by a case-based analysis of the various structural pathologies and their complications. Clear guidance is also provided on patient selection, preoperative evaluation, and choice of available devices. The authors are all acknowledged experts with extensive experience in laboratories and surgical units. The book fully reflects the rapid changes in structural interventional cardiology that have occurred during recent years. These advances are in particular due to the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve implantation, which allows cardiac surgeons to achieve excellent outcomes in patients at high surgical risk. Other exciting developments include new technologies that permit better treatment of other structural cardiac pathologies and valid alternatives to medical therapy in particular patient groups.

The field of invasive and interventional cardiology is dynamic with frequent advances in both technique and technology. An internationally-renowned team of editors and over 100 contributors have shaped this textbook to provide clinicians with a thorough guide that covers the procedural and peri-procedural aspects of coronary, peripheral, and structural heart disease diagnostics and interventions. This comprehensive and highly illustrated textbook presents critical information for anyone active in the field of cardiovascular interventions, including: Practical suggestions on how to set up a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory, choose the right equipment and minimize radiation exposure. A careful analysis of the general principles of percutaneous coronary interventions, the specific knowledge needed in different clinical scenarios, as well as the patient selection criteria for each invasive procedure. In-depth coverage of non-coronary interventions, including 13 chapters on peripheral vascular interventions, including carotid artery stenting, as well as newer procedures for intracranial stenosis treatment, septal defect repair, and left atrial appendage closure. An incorporation of emerging procedures in structural heart disease, such as percutaneous aortic valve replacement and mitral valve repair—that although not presently mainstream, will likely become an important domain of interventional cardiologists. Given the importance of appropriate training and credentialing for clinicians, the textbook also includes current national guidelines and policies on the performance of the various procedures.
