Cardiovascular Medicine as a specialty is inundated with clinical trials for practice of evidence-based medicine. However, there is a definite gap in resources available to reference the myriad of clinical trials and trace the evolution of contemporary practices.

This first edition of “Evidence-Based Interventional Cardiology and Endovascular Medicine” is a collection of clinical trial data spanning the breadth of the specialty from coronary to structural and peripheral interventions. This compilation has been in preparation over a period of 3 years and would not have succeeded without the participation of several colleagues within the specialty that have also recognized this need and contributed to this collection.
