Coronary Physiology in the Cardiac Cath Lab

William F. Fearon

Coronary Physiology in the Cardiac Cath Lab provides the foundational knowledge required to understand the concepts behind a variety of coronary physiologic assessments performed and required to apply them effectively when evaluating cardiac patients. Written to bring a practical and evidence-based approach, this book is a valuable resource for interventional and general cardiologists, cardiology researchers, physicians, cardiac catheterization laboratory staff, and anyone interested in understanding the theory and current practice surrounding assessing coronary physiology in the cardiac cath lab. Over the past decade, there has been an explosion of data validating the importance of assessing coronary physiology at the time of coronary angiography. This has led to the development of numerous new techniques and metrics for performing these assessments and also resulted in the inclusion of these indices into practice guidelines.

About the Author

Fearon, William F.: - Dr. Fearon's primary area of research interest is in coronary physiology. He has been the principal investigator of numerous multicenter clinical trials, including the FAME trials, which have resulted in multiple publications in the New England Journal of Medicine and led to worldwide adoption of the use of coronary physiology to guide revascularization decisions in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. He also derived and validated the index of microcirculatory resistance, which is now used commonly to assess coronary microvascular function. He has over 250 publications, speaks regularly at major international conferences, and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Circulation, JACC Cardiovascular Interventions, and Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions, among other journals. His research laboratory has had near continuous NIH funding and he is currently the principal investigator on an NIH grant evaluating cardiac allograft vasculopathy. He has received multiple teaching awards from Stanford University and has mentored numerous clinician-scientists.
