An Atlas of Radioscopic Catheter Placement for the Electrophysiologist
BeschreibungAn Atlas of Radioscopic Catheter Placement is unique, and has been conceived as a handy reference guide for students, interventional cardiologists, nurses and electrophysiology technicians. It includes plenty of schemes and X-ray images, and every EP correct catheter positioning is explained step by step through detailed descriptions of the necessary manoeuvres, including some "trucks" brought about by the experience.

PressestimmenFrom the reviews:
"This is an in-depth pictorial review of fluoroscopic anatomy related to electrophysiological studies, including pacing and radiofrequency catheter ablative procedures. ... It will be of interest to practicing cardiologists, elctrophysiologists, and cardiology and electrophysiology fellows in training. This atlas may also be of interest to personnel in cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology laboratories, such as nurses and technicians, who work closely with elctrophysiologists. ... All chapters are well organized with numerous images and procedural descriptions." (Anil Verma, Doody's Review Service, February, 2009)
