DESCRIPTION:
The story of the development and use of the first balloon-expandable coronary stent. The premise of this intriguing book is technical innovation and scientific development. It is about coronary and vascular stenting, a technique that has improved the plight of patients who have unfortunately succumbed to the most devastating epidemic facing modern man - coronary and vascular atherosclerosis. It is also about a lifetime and a career devoted to finding safer, effective, and less invasive solutions to these clinical problems. Dr Gary S. Roubin, MD, PhD, writes of the pioneering work done by Andreas Gruentzig on balloon angioplasty for peripheral and coronary arteries. After Gruentzig's untimely death, Roubin was determined that Gruentzig's method would indeed work. He writes of the work involved to get the balloon-expandable coronary stent to the point where it was deployed in man: 3 September 1987, and then follows its development to the current day. This is an account of the expedition that began with the 'Model T Ford' of cardiovascular intervention - an endeavour that evolved into the 'Ferrari' that we know today. This personal story tells of the collaboration of inventors, physician scientists, engineers, and the cardiovascular device industry that has changed the practice of cardiovascular medicine forever.
