Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio

Series: Cardiology Research and Clinical Developments

Percutaneous valve technology has received tremendous interest in the last few years from both clinicians and public as a direct result of advancements in endovascular techniques that made this technology a potential option and a promising reality. In this book, the authors review the latest of this rapidly emerging medical technology from all aspects, as it stands at present with the prediction of progress into the near and far future. This is a valuable book for the general public and of special value for the Interventional Cardiologists, Interventional Radiologists, Cardiac Surgeons, Cardiologists and Cardiac Anesthesiologists.
