About this book

Minimal extracorporeal circulation (MECC) systems have been designed in order to reduce dramatically the side-effects of conventional extracorporeal circulation while serving as a safe perfusion technique for open heart surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. The book aims to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive overview covering practical advice on how to use MECC systems for those new to the field as well as tips, pitfalls, results, and latest developments. It also offers a systematic review of all published studies on a variety of MECC systems. The book will enable physicians to gain a better understanding of these new systems as well as to understand the rationale for their use in cardiac surgery. MECC requires a multidisciplinary approach, and this book will serve as an essential reference for all health care professionals working in the cardiac surgical operating room, in particular cardiothoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists, and perfusionists

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book does an excellent job of defining the state of the art of MECC in a practical and comprehensive manner. It will benefit patients and practitioners of cardiac surgery. It is directed at students and practitioners in cardiac surgery, including perfusionists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and the rest of operating room staff. … The chapters are well organized with excellent citations. … It will enable the multidisciplinary team to gain a better understanding of the benefits and implementation of this technology in cardiac surgery.” (Michael Bates, Doody’s Book Reviews, August, 2013)
