Urgent Interventional Therapies focuses on the urgent interventional procedures performed in the most serious and critical cases of cardiovascular and peripheral artery diseases, where immediate specialist care is required, such as cardiac arrest, acute myocardial infarction, stroke, critical leg ischemia, aneurysm, and pulmonary embolism.

Illustrating the differences between urgent interventions and interventions performed to manage chronic conditions, the authors use a consistent structure for ease of use beginning with background, indications, evidence review, and device description, then moving to procedural techniques, follow–up care, and complications. Accompanying high–definition surgical videos, complete with tips and tricks, provide an additional visual learning tool.

The editors represent some of the world′s leading experts in interventional cardiology and are supported by a stellar team of international authors who provide their expert knowledge and experience for each topic. A section on radiologic and experimental therapies covers potential treatments of the future, including cell therapy, aqueous oxygen therapy, cryotherapy, and therapeutic hypothermia. 

Urgent Interventional Therapies will be invaluable to all interventionalists, specifically interventional cardiologists and radiologists who, as a result of an increasing call for urgent interventions, wish to expand their armamentarium of surgical and clinical skills.
