Interventional Cardiology Textbook



The PCR - EAPCI Textbook of Percutaneous Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine

A Textbook made by and for the interventional community and dedicated to the patients it serves

The PCR-EAPCI Percutaneous Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine Textbook is the first of its kind, all-inclusive reference whose scope and content is patient-centred and promotes good, evidence-based clinical practices. With 24 revised chapters in 2016 and almost 70% updated content since its release, the online edition features up-to-date content closest to physicians’ needs.

It is poised to become the reference for interventional practitioners. There are four volumes dedicated to diagnosis, coronary interventions, structural heart disease, peripheral interventions and perspectives.
