Minimal access thoracic surgery is increasingly recognized for its considerable potential in treating lung and chest disease, reducing hospital stay, decreasing patient's post-operative discomfort and improving cosmesis.
This definitive and highly practical book is written by an international team of experts with chapters on every aspect of thoracoscopic surgery, including clearly-defined indications and post-operative management. Cardiac and oesophageal procedures, as well as pulmonary operations, are described in a deliberately easy-to-follow manner, accompanied by high-quality artwork. A final chapter is devoted to the future of minimal access cardiac surgery.

K. Manncke, Professor of Surgery, University of Tubingen. R. D. Rosin, Consulyant Surgeon, St Mary's Hospital, London.Review:
" ... This book is a well-written synthesis of current experience with new minimally invasive techniques in cardiothoracic surgery. ... the strength of this book, in addition to the technical detail, lies in the reasoned discussion of the context in which the procedures should be done. ...
this book is valuable in that it covers a fast-breaking field in which thoughtful, reflective commentary is lacking, and it should be a welcome addition to any thoracic surgeon's book collection." Canadian Journal of Surgery (Apr 2000)
