Series 1 (INTCAR1): Stay Current on the Newest Advances

Comprehensive Review of Interventional Cardiology is an in-depth guide to the diagnostic, management, and technical skills required in this continually advancing field. Authoritative interventional cardiologists cover topics like anticoagulation, cardiogenic shock, bifurcation stenting, bypass grafts, renal artery stenting, pericardial interventions, and more. This CME course will help you to:
  • List effective lipid-lowering pharmacologic therapies
  • Illustrate carotid and cerebrovascular interventions
  • Outline interventions used for stable angina and silent ischemia
  • Discuss different peripheral interventions for upper and lower extremities
  • Describe interventions for patent foramen ovale and atrial septal defect closure
  • Distinguish between the various stents used to treat coronary disease
