“Coronary stenosis. Imaging, structure and physiology” has been designed as a clinically and research orientated reference for all cardiologists, physicians, cardiovascular imagers, trainees and investigators working in the field of ischemic heart disease. In the scenario of facilitated access to the coronary arteries provided by new diagnostic techniques, this book comes to fill an empty space in the medical literature: a textbook providing a comprehensive, multifaceted analysis of atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic coronary stenosis, addressing multiple issues that are of key importance in invasive and non-invasive diagnostic studies of the coronary vessels.
An emphasis has been placed on integrating three separate aspects: imaging, structure and physiology.
The chapters are written by top experts in invasive and non-invasive diagnostics, coronary anatomy, pathology and physiology, encouraged by the editors to address each topic from a plural perspective to facilitate knowledge and sharing between their respective disciplines. The website provides access to the electronic edition of the book, which includes moving images and updated material.
This book is an indispensable companion for all those involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ischemic heart disease.
