Cardiac Surgery in the Adult guides residents and practicing surgeons through diagnosis, treatment and management as well as operative strategy, decision-making, and technique in adult cardiac surgery. Developments in this field are constant and are in line with the surgical trends at large: less-invasive surgery with faster recovery times. Developments in this field include the use of robotic surgery, minimally invasive valve and coronary artery bypass surgery, stem-cell induced regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and more, all of which are discussed and completely updated. Trends also take into account the demographics of the patient with an eye toward cross-training the surgeon in endovascular skills by including topics such as percutaneous intervention and endovascular graft technology.q--Provided by publisherKurth CD, Oa#39;Rourke MM, Oa#39;Hara IB, Uher B: Brain cooling efficiency with pH-stat and alpha-stat cardiopulmonary bypass in ...
