Transcatheter Closure of ASDs and PFOs: A Comprehensive Assessment

Transcatheter Closure of ASDs and PFOs: A Comprehensive Assessment

English | 2010 | ISBN: 0979016495 | 459 Pages | PDF | 15,5 MB

In a single volume, Transcatheter Closure of ASDs and PFOs: A Comprehensive Assessment supplies pediatric cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, and cardiology fellows with expertise about all aspects of treating ASDs and PFOs. Along with thorough discussions of fundamental topics such as anatomy, natural history, and indications, it offers abundant information about imaging techniques, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, devices, and trials. Every device currently available, both approved and nonapproved, is covered in detail along with technical analyses of how to close defects. In addition, this timely book addresses the association between PFOs and strokes and migraines, and examines the status of all trials relevant to transcatheter closure of ASDs and PFOs.
