Since 1986, when stents were first inserted into human coronary arteries, hundreds of thousands have been implanted as they have become the universal panacea for complications and for complex lesion subsets. Illustrated throughout with angiograms the book looks at the latest technologies and the resulting developments and problems. The editors have assembled a brilliant team of international cardiologists to consider the thought processes behind the decision making and to share their experience with the reader in how to deal with complicated anatomy and physiology, how to overcome the complications, and when to summon more experienced help.
