About this Textbook

This book provides a guide to the anatomy and the surgical techniques required in thoracic and cardiothoracic surgery. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of certain surgical procedures in relation to the lymphatic system, thyroid gland, chest wall and parathyroid glands, as well as pulmonary endarterectomy. Further, it addresses intraoperative and postoperative complications, and explores newer fields like microthymectomy, microlobectomy, and pain management for thoracic surgery patients.
 Providing an update on the latest advances in thoracic surgery, it appeals to general, thoracic, cardiothoracic, and cardiovascular surgeons. It also offers trainees insights into the foundation of the techniques and the relevant anatomy.
