5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW
"Each chapter reports the state-of-the-art and reflects the most recent reports in the international literature. The DVD is especially valuable. With modern surgical textbooks becoming more like multimedia tools than dry stacks of unreadable pages, readers can count on visual depictions of new techniques. The book achieves its goal of shedding new light on all the needed areas. This is a great resource for medical professionals involved in the care of patients with cardiac surgical diseases. It certainly is a 'must have' for trainees in cardiothoracic surgery as well as for more experienced practitioners who desire a reliable update from world renowned leaders in the field."--Doody's Review Service
