About this book

Introduction

Approximately 120 different surgical procedures are used to correct congenital heart diseases, and the burden that this places on the surgeon is compounded by the exceptional complexity of the techniques and the rarity of many of the lesions. Training is problematic, not least because of legal issues, and currently available texts, drawings, and images are no substitute for real ‘live’ surgery. Against this background, the authors have set out to create an interactive multimedia manual that covers many aspects of congenital heart surgery. Each heart defect is addressed in an individual chapter, elaborating specific surgical anatomy and indication for surgery of heart defect first, followed by video clips depicting the operative approach and technique. The clips are accompanied by a clear descriptive narrative, and patient history and diagnostic images are available to provide a clear backdrop to the operation. The chosen format makes this manual not only a very powerful teaching tool for practicing cardiac surgeons and surgeons in training but also a valuable source of information for related services such as pediatric and adult cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologist, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists and medical students.​

Reviews

“In a current training environment that requires more simulation and preparation outside of the operating room, this book and videos offer the very best instruction for complex congenital heart surgery. … This is valuable for all clinicians involved in the treatment of congenital heart surgery patients, both in surgery and in the perioperative period. For trainees, students and medical staff, this book offers a superb look into the operative approach for the correction of these complex lesions.” (Michael Bates, Doody’s Book Reviews, October, 2015)

“This is an amazing book, with real-life, full-color photos of a large number of actual surgical procedures performed on the heart and other parts of the cardiovascular system of patients, particularly children. … It’s well organized, thorough in coverage, containing a lot of details, and most importantly, provides the photos and videos that are so critical to thorough learning and understanding of life-saving surgical procedures.” (Nano Khilnani, Biz India Online News, bizindia.net, August, 2015)
