About this book

Introduction

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the surgical treatment of heart valve disease. The aim is to provide the reader with precise information on treatment modalities, indications, and specific situations that may be encountered. After introductory chapters on history and surgical anatomy, available valve replacement devices are reviewed and the optimal choice in different settings explained. The surgical management of aortic, mitral, tricuspid, and pulmonary valve disease is then presented in individual chapters with the aid of superbly realistic illustrations and high-quality photos. Dysfunctions of implanted heart valves are also addressed, and a concluding chapter summarizes the results achieved to date.

The authors are recognized experts in heart valve surgery, and draw on their vast experience to provide a book that will serve not only as a basic manual for cardiac surgeons but also as an invaluable compendium of readily understood information for cardiologists and general practitioners.
