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 utilizes case studies to illustrate a variety of percutaneous strategies to treat important cardiac pathology that would previously have mandated cardiac surgery. A desire to minimize the invasiveness of interventions and reduce patient exposure to risk have been the main drivers in developing catheter-based techniques in preference to established surgical methods.

Cases in Structural Cardiac Interventions discusses how procedures will continue to increase in popularity as operator expertise grows and technology advances. It provides a useful resource for imaging and interventional cardiologists to work together in developing an inter-disciplinary team skill set that can be adapted towards specific percutaneous intervention in order to ensure optimal patient outcome.
