Cardiac Surgery in the Adult 4th Edition PDF
The fourth edition of Cardiac Surgery in the Adult is a collection of the most current knowledge and updated experiences of the world’s leading cardiovascular experts treating adults with acquired, congenital, infectious, and traumatic diseases of the heart, including chapters from experts in the perioperative and postoperative management of patients. Since the third edition, which was published in 2007, there have been many changes in the field of cardiovascular medicine. I believe this fourth edition will be a valuable tool to all in our specialty to help us understand the best treatment options available to our patients and how to master the skills to apply these therapies. In addition, chapters on techniques long available to us for the treatment of all forms of adult acquired cardiac disease have been updated to re-emphasize the importance of the traditional approaches to heart disease. Video clip demonstrations of complex operative procedures, which we began in the third edition, continue in this edition and have increased in number.
