About the Authors

Mladen I. Vidovich, MD, FACC, FSCAI, is an interventional cardiologist with extensive experience in transradial cardiac catheterization and intervention. He has been particularly active in promoting transradial cardiac catheterization in the United States by organizing courses, lecturing and by publishing numerous articles on the topic. As an innovator, Dr. Vidovich has designed a dedicated catheter for ventriculography from the radial approach. In this new book, he has successfully assembled a global group of prominent authors from the world’s leading centers to provide the reader a contemporary and practical approach for radial angiography and intervention.

 
Adhir Shroff, MD, MPH, FACC, FSCAI, is a practicing academic interventional cardiologist with an interest in education. He has been committed to the transradial approach since 2009 and has developed training courses for physicians, nurses, technologists, administrators, and industry partners. He speaks nationally on a variety of topics related to transradial access, including the clinical and economic benefits. He has published widely in this area as well. As the editor of an earlier handbook on transradial procedures, Dr. Shroff hopes this new book provides a practical, contemporary reference for clinicians at all stages of transradial training.
