  • Novel approach to the topic concentrating on clinical issues
  • Includes detailed review of inflammatory processes in cardiovascular surgery
  • Clear and consistent format designed for surgeons and cardiology clinicians

Much attention has been drawn to the impact of the inflammatory response in cardiovascular surgery. Minimizing deleterious effects of cardiovascular surgery consists of understanding the pathogenesis of the inflammatory response and how to modulate it using medical strategies and especially specific operative approaches. Despite the attention on this response, the concept has been underestimated and overlooked, and scientific information on it is still lacking in the medical literature.


Inflammatory Response in Cardiovascular Surgery includes the most recent and exciting topics regarding the relationship between inflammation and cardiovascular surgery. It provides comprehensive instruction to assist understanding of the inflammatory mechanisms involved and clarifies the basic immunologic and physiologic concepts. The book then includes discussion of the neuroendocrine response, pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and mechanisms of inflammation, while emphasizing the impact on surgery and pathologic aspects. As such this textbook will be vital reading for all involved in the management of cardiovascular surgical patients, such as cardiovascular and transplant surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, cardiovascular and vascular fellows, and researchers.
