Given the growing elderly population that may have grown up with congenital or acquired valve disease, many more patients than ever before will require valve repair, thus increasing health care costs not only with surgical operations, but also with hospitalization. Percutanous valve repair, while requiring a cath lab team, does not involve bypass machines or extended hospitalization, therefore prompting a huge movement toward percutanous valve repair, which should not only cut hospital costs and potential loss of earnings for the patient, but should also reduce patient morbidity and mortality.

The first book to be published on this new and fast-paced technique, Transcatheter Valve Repair discusses all aspects related to percutaneous and established valve repair methods. Divided into major sections covering all four valves, each section contains several chapters discussing everything related to that valve. Beginning with the pulmonary valve, since it was the first to be tackled in the cath lab, the book then moves on to the aortic, the mitral and finally the tricuspid valve.

With editors and authors who are pioneers in transcatheter valve repair, Transcatheter Valve Repair is undoubtedly a highly useful resource for interventional cardiologists, both adult and pediatric, in the field.
