How does an operation work? Why is it necessary in some cases but not others? What is its history and what are the pitfalls? Providing core information oriented to the non-surgeon members of the cardiac team, this book answers these questions and also describes the basics of pre- and post-operative care. The expert discussions are augmented with meticulous illustrations of techniques and approaches.

."..it serves its purpose admirably....The illustrations are so clear and simple that the book might appeal to all doctors who need to discuss proposed heart surgery with patients or their parents...It is strongly recommended." Australian and New Zealand Jnl. of Surgery
