Reviews

“This surgical atlas, composed predominantly of cardiac surgical specimens, covers normal cardiac anatomy, surgical approaches, and congenital heart defects. … The audience is primarily surgeons and pathologists. Students and trainees in these disciplines will find it particularly valuable for its elucidation of many different types of complex cardiac anatomy. … It is also useful for cardiologists and anesthesiologists working closely with cardiac surgery patients. ” (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, July, 2015)
