Updates to PCR-EAPCI Textbook, the essential reference book for interventional practitioners

This press release was issued by the EuroPCR Press Office. Please contact for further information.

Interventional Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery

Paris, France, 20 May 2019. A new update to the PCR-EAPCI Textbook to be presented at EuroPCR 2019 this week, features new chapters on invasive physiological assessment of coronary disease, and the role of imaging in CTO intervention. It includes revisions to 15 chapters including bifurcation lesions and left main coronary artery disease. New chapters will be announced at ESC Congress 2019 and PCR London Valves 2019.

The PCR-EAPCI Percutaneous Interventional Cardiovascular Medicine Textbook is an all-inclusive, patient centred reference book that promotes evidence-based clinical practices.

The textbook includes over 110 illustrated chapters dedicated to diagnosis, coronary interventions, structural heart disease, and peripheral interventions. It covers everything clinical and practical that today’s interventional cardiologist needs to know and offers updated content throughout the year. Hundreds of expert authors make this a valuable resource for daily practice, in study, and in discussion with colleagues. It is interactive and develops with the community, reacting to specific needs brought by new evidence and experience.

Updates are released throughout the year, coinciding with major PCR events. For the EuroPCR 2019 update, new chapters include invasive physiological assessment of coronary disease: iFR and the role of imaging in CTO intervention, as well as 15 updated chapters including bifurcation lesions and left main coronary artery disease.

For ESC Congress 2019, four updates and two new chapters on computational non-invasive physiological assessment of coronary disease and the high bleeding risk patient are planned. During the PCR London Valves Course, the chapters on TAVI, mitral and tricuspid valves will be updated. 

Free online access to the full content is available for all EuroPCR participants from 20-26 May 2019.

The Textbook is also available on the dedicated PCR bookshop all year long.
