Written to supplement standard textbooks and operative atlases, this updated reference concentrates on the issue of complication prevention and treatment.  By challenging the contributors to address specific issues related to both intraoperative techniques and post-operative care that will reduce the incidence of complications, Drs. Little and Merrill present a book that reinforces the commitment to excellence in cardiothoracic surgery.

The book opens with a section on general topics with regard to cardiothoracic surgical complications, including thoracic incisions, postoperative arrhythmias, and myocardial preservation.  Then Drs. Little and Merrill draw on their expertise in thoracic and cardiac surgery, respectively.  They have assembled a team of experts to address specific diseases encountered and operations performed by cardiac and general thoracic surgeons.

With advice developed through years of experience by some of the most respected names in the field, Complications in Cardiothoracic Surgery: Avoidance and Treatment, 2nd Edition makes an ideal introduction for the new trainee and the perfect refresher for the practicing surgeon.
