The percutaneous method of transluminal myocardial revascularization has roused enthusiasm in the field of cardiology because it is minimally invasive and relatively inexpensive. In his progressive new book, George Abela, a widely recognized pioneer in cardiology and lasers, has brought together the expertise of international leaders on the subject in this premier reference, Myocardial Revascularization: Novel Percutaneous Approaches.
This resource provides interventional cardiologists, technical personnel and nurses in cardiac catheterization labs with the most current scholarly and clinical information available, including: A historical overview of myocardial revascularization (including the Vineberg procedure and the more recent TMR/PMR procedures) Biological responses and mechanisms of action in myocardial revascularization using mechanical, laser, ultrasound, and cryoenergy Current technology for the percutaneous method of the procedure Descriptions of other novel approaches including percutaneous in situ coronary venous arterialization Discussion of results from preliminary and advanced TMR/PMR in canine and human procedures Examination of various catheter navigation systems and potential adjunct gene therapies Myocyte transplantation to replenish the depleted myocardium Insights into the economics of these novel percutaneous techniques
