Cardiac Surgery. 4th ed

All chapters have undergone major scrutiny. Many new materials have been introduced. These include the surgical ventricular reconstruction for both left and right ventricular dysfunction, the management of porcelain aorta, and antegrade cerebral perfusion. The section on congenital heart defects introduces new procedures for pulmonary vein stenosis, updated approaches for Tetralogy of Fallot, the aortic translocation operation, and the Sano procedure. Several parts of the book have been completely rewritten, incorporating recent concepts and approaches into the text. Obsolete procedures have been deleted.
The book continues to be primarily intended for younger surgeons and those in training. However, it can also serve as a handy refresher on surgical technique for senior cardiac surgeons. Pediatric and adult cardiologists as well as perfusionists, nurses, and anyone involved in the care of cardiac surgical patients should find this work useful.
