This is the second edition of Key Questions in Cardiac Surgery, which has become the must-read book for all cardiac surgical practitioners and is part of the revolutionary 'Key Questions' series of cardiothoracic surgical textbooks. The first edition was an international bestseller, for many years being the most popular cardiac surgical book.
Key Questions in Cardiac Surgery provides a systematic overview of the important topics in contemporary adult cardiac surgical practice. The text is evidence-based, incorporating current literature and has been updated from the first edition with the most recent American Heart Association and European Society of Cardiology guidelines. The main chapters have also been refreshed describing contemporary surgical techniques and management philosophies, with additional chapters on statistics and pulmonary embolism.
This illustrated concise text is a practical and clinically focused book that covers all the key questions in cardiac surgery. Whilst being an ideal reference for cardiac surgical trainees and residents, especially when undertaking their cardiothoracic surgery board examinations, this book is also of great value to other specialties involved in the care of cardiac surgical patients, including cardiologists, cardiothoracic intensivists, nurses and physiotherapists.
