About this book

Disease of the mitral and tricuspid valves is a common disorder affecting approximately 3% of the population. Recent improvements in the understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease processes affecting these valves have led to significant changes in the management strategies applied, with better outcomes. The field of mitral and tricuspid valve surgery continues to expand with the development of new techniques and operations as well as the refinement of well-established surgical procedures. Operative Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Surgery will systematically cover all the main topics involved in the current practice of an adult cardiac surgeon, performing operations on the mitral and tricuspid valve. Each chapter will be structured to include a step-by-step approach to the peri-operative management and surgical technique pertaining to each pathological process affecting the mitral and tricuspid valves. Importantly, there will be a section on the basic sciences related to the anatomy and physiology of the mitral and tricuspid valves, and a further section on pre-operative imaging of these valves, illustrating the variety of pathologies encountered. The book will be relevant to all adult cardiac surgeons, performing mitral and tricuspid valve surgery, at any stage of their career. It will provide them with a structured system to approach all pathologies of the mitral and tricuspid valves. Adult cardiologists and cardiac intensive care unit specialists will also find this book useful in terms of the management of these patients, as they are integral to the cardiac surgical process. Its concise, yet complete coverage of the important topics make it the ideal guide to answer the key questions involved in operating on the mitral and tricuspid valves. The data and body of knowledge presented in this book is based on the practice of a recognized international leader in the field, who has been performing and evolving these techniques for over 25 years.

About the authors

Narain Moorjani is a cardiothoracic surgeon providing the full range of cardiac surgical procedures, including coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement.  He forms part of the specialist valve group, performing complex mitral valve repair surgery, as well as surgery of the thoracic aorta. He also performs procedures to control abnormal heart rhythms, as well as minimally invasive cardiac surgery (including valve surgery through small incisions and coronary surgery without the use of the heart-lung bypass machine). He was the first surgeon to introduce minimally invasive cardiopulmonary bypass to Papworth Hospital.

Narain Moorjani came to Papworth having previously worked as a consultant cardiac surgeon at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London and Assistant Professor in Cardiothoracic Surgery in Philadelphia, USA. Prior to that, he completed a research doctorate of medicine (MD) at the University of Oxford and National Heart and Lung Institute, investigating the genes involved in the development of heart failure. His research interests are currently focussing on the genes responsible for enlargement of the thoracic aorta.

Francis Wells is a recognized leader in the field of mitral and tricuspid valve surgery.  He lectures on the subject internationally and has published numerous articles on the topic. He initially trained in London and the United States, before moving to Papworth Hospital as a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon in 1986. His specialist area of cardiac surgical interest is the management of all forms of heart valve disease, especially mitral valve reconstruction.

Mr Wells has the largest experience in the United Kingdom and among the largest in the world with over 3,000 cases completed achieving a near 100% repair rate for leaking mitral valves with mortality at less than 1.0% for first time procedures. His aim is to achieve a normally functioning valve. He also has an interest in aortic valve repair and surgery of the aorta. In his thoracic practice, Mr Wells offers a full range of surgical procedures for lung cancer and all benign diseases in the chest. This includes hyperhydrosis, thoracic outlet syndrome and pectus deformities.
