The sixth edition of this acclaimed and established operative atlas continues to provide a unique level of comprehensive detail on operative surgery of the heart and great vessels.
With an international list of authors, the chapters have been updated and complemented by the same high quality artwork that has established this operative guide as the gold standard reference for the cardiac surgeon.
This new edition retains the format of initial principles and justification for the procedure, followed by preoperative investigations and preparation, the operative procedure, and postoperative management. New chapters have been added on the latest techniques such as minimal invasive surgery, robotic surgery and off-pump bypass surgery.
The chapters are arranged in seven sections, with each section emphasising the overall management of patients, tricks of the trade of individual authors and discussion of technical and clinical judgement.
With this new and updated edition, Operative Cardiac Surgery remains the pre-eminent operative guide to a full range of cardiac conditions.
Video clips of cardiac procedures, both common and rare, are included within the VitalSource edition.
