This new book discusses the new developments and technologies in cardiovascular interventions. It starts with a section on the ethical dimensions of surgical and interventional learning curves, followed by simulator developments in endovascular procedures. The obvious change from morphological to functional radiology within the cardiovascular field is addressed. Minimally invasive aortic valve implantation is a new and fascinating technology and endovascular treatment of type A aortic dissection is close to clinical application. Critical issues like aortic arch repair and endovascular treatment in connective tissue diseases are described and discussed. In addition, the latest developments in juxta-renal, descending thoracic and thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms are addressed. Crucial discussions in carotid artery pathology highlight decision making in asymptomatic lesions, acute ischemic stroke management, guidelines in carotid stenting and the role of embolic protection. Treatment of visceral and renal arteries also requires critical appraisal when balancing conservative treatment, open surgery and endovascular modalities. Finally, the management of peripheral arterial disease faces multiple innovative advances including pro-angiogenic cytokines, new recanalization techniques, drug eluting stents and balloons as well as new thrombolysis strategies.
