Cardiology Procedures
The last 50 years have witnessed remarkable growth in our understanding of cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, the ability of physicians to diagnose and treat patients with cardiovascular disorders has expanded in step with the enlarging knowledge concerning the pathophysiology of heart and vascular diseases.

Effective therapy for patients with these disorders can only occur when an accurate diagnosis has been made. For example, starting in the early 1950s, invasive cardiac diagnostic ability and effective cardiac surgical intervention advanced together. The latter half of the twentieth century and the early years of the twenty-fi rst century have seen explosive growth in our ability to perform accurate and economically appropriate invasive and noninvasive diagnostic evaluations followed by appropriate therapeutic interventions.
In this regard, Drs. Hendel and Kimmelstiel have assembled in this text an impressive array of experts who have clearly and concisely reviewed the essential features of the totality of cardiologic diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Each chapter concisely describes the indications for the various procedures followed by explicit instructions for preparing patients for the test or intervention described.
Subsequent material then succinctly describes the most effective and safe method for carrying out the specifi c test or intervention. Didactic material is elegantly supplemented by informative case presentations.
