The book begins with a history of cardiac surgery and basic cardiac science, then moves into all types of cardiac surgery, providing both practicing surgeons and residents insight into the very latest surgical protocols.
Presented in full color for the first time, the fourth edition of Cardiac Surgery in the Adult is aligned with up-to-the-minute developments in the field including recent surgical trends in minimally invasive cardiac surgery.
