Atlas of Percutaneous Edge-to-Edge Mitral Valve Repair by Jason Rogers M.D., FACC, FSCAI (auth.), Ted Feldman, Olaf

By Jason Rogers M.D., FACC, FSCAI (auth.), Ted Feldman, Olaf Franzen, Reginald Low, Jason Rogers, Khung Keong Yeo (eds.)

The box of structural center affliction interventions is experiencing a degree of swift development with the improvement of percutaneous mitral valve fix treatments and percutaneous aortic valve alternative remedies. The MitraClip represents a brand new healing frontier for mitral regurgitation and is predicted to revolutionize fix of the mitral valve. For the 1st time on the earth, physicians now have the aptitude to fix the mitral valve percutaneously with no the necessity for a sternotomy or cardiopulmonary skip. even if, as with any new endeavors, there's a steep studying curve, not only for the person operator but additionally for the complete box. The MitraClip know-how and method is technically advanced and is guided through echocardiography and fluoroscopy. it truly is an imaging extensive method that calls for deep three-d knowing of standard and irregular cardiac anatomy. no longer all mitral regurgitation situations are appropriate and never all instances are ordinary. it truly is accordingly crucially very important for physicians during this forte to speak their adventure, successes, disasters and issues with one another.

Written by means of the leaders during this leap forward box, the Atlas of Percutaneous Edge-to-Edge Mitral Valve Repair is the 1st of its variety for the hot percutaneous MitraClip strategy. The Editors have designed the ebook to be a complete reference guide and to supply cardiologists with real examples of simple and intricate instances of percutaneous mitral valve fix utilizing the expertise. furthermore, this booklet offers step by step publications to the method and problems in addition to steps to get over them are mentioned. The Atlas is predicted to be a really invaluable reference for either beginner and skilled interventional cardiologists and echocardiologists. As percutaneous valve fix turns into extra universal it is going to even be of significant curiosity to common cardiologists and surgeons.
