Editorial Reviews


“This is an excellent second edition on the broad and complex area of cardiac surgery. It covers most of the latest advances in the field and is a great companion to current textbooks and an excellent resource for practicing surgeons, trainees, and nonphysician providers. The illustrations are masterful and offer a truly insightful explanation of these very complex operations. While it is not intended to be an exhaustive resource on all topics, such as valve repair, it does cover almost all areas outside of minimally invasive and robotic surgery and is a truly beautiful and informative book on the state of the art of cardiac surgery.”- Michael Bates, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics) 4 star Doody Rating!
