Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) has entered its third decade, as it had gone through a PTCA era, BMS era, and entered into the DES era. This book summarizes information gathered from recent literature in the field of PCI, focusing on PCI procedures, adjunctive pharmacotherapy and adverse effects. The editor has put together a comprehensive, in-depth guide to PCI, which has seen great advances in the understanding and management of coronary artery disease in recent years. The book examines all aspects of PCI in detail, in isolation and in combination with procedures, or medical uses and its adverse effects, to fulfill the aim of helping healthcare professionals and medical students to better understand and manage PCI problems in the DES era.
