In Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, renowned authorities comprehensively review the many exciting developments occurring across the rapidly emerging field of "minimally invasive" or "minimal access" cardiac surgery. The book's distinguished panel of contributors presents the interventional cardiologist's perspective, spells out the key factors for success in beating-heart coronary bypass grafting through limited incisions, and surveys the various methods of harvesting the internal thoracic artery. Other topics treated include immobilization of the surgical field, minimal access valve and congenital surgery, alternative methods of anastomosis, and port-access coronary bypass grafting
Summarizing all the latest findings on the powerful new techniques comprising minimally invasive coronary surgery-as well as their results-including those for valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and coronary revascularization, Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery is today's new gold-standard reference, detailing an optimal approach to cardiac surgery that will enormously benefit future practitioners and patients alike.
