Since the advent of cardiac surgery, and more especially surgical procedures on the open heart, the importance of fundamental understanding of anatomical details concerning congenital malformations and acquired pathological changes has been of great significance. The success of cardiac surgery is greatly dependent on excellent operative techniques, but excellence of technique can be dissipated without a firm knowledge of cardiac morphology. "Surgical Anatomy of the Heart" provides the reader with an illustrated account of the anatomical and physiological concepts of changes within the heart. This new edition incorporates sections on acquired malformations, includes some new views to take into account recently developed operative procedures, contains more clinical photographs of actual operations and cuts out many of the "post mortem" specimens in favour of the more realistic clinical views.
