Cardiac Reconstructions with Allograft Tissues

Overview

Cryopreserved allograft tissues are now standard materials for the reconstructive cardiac surgeon. Since publication of the first edition ("Cardiac Reconstructions with Allograft Valves") in 1989, the field has progressed dramatically with increased clinical use of cardiovascular allograft tissues, with the development of new surgical techniques, and with advances in the understanding of the fundamentals of valve transplantation biology and cryopreservation. As a result, over two-thirds of the present volume ...

Overview

Cryopreserved allograft tissues are now standard materials for the reconstructive cardiac surgeon. Since publication of the first edition ("Cardiac Reconstructions with Allograft Valves") in 1989, the field has progressed dramatically with increased clinical use of cardiovascular allograft tissues, with the development of new surgical techniques, and with advances in the understanding of the fundamentals of valve transplantation biology and cryopreservation. As a result, over two-thirds of the present volume represents new material. Fifty-six authors bring their expertise to thirteen comprehensive, lavishly illustrated sections which discuss the principles of the use of homograft valves, major clinical series of homograft valves for both left and right ventricular outflow tracts, cryopreserved allograft tissue for cardiac reconstruction, cell biology of heart valve leaflets, cryobiology of heart valve preservation, morphological, biochemical, and explant pathology studies of allograft heart valves, allograft valve banking, as well as detailed explanation of surgical techniques for valve and root methods for left and right ventricular outflow tract reconstructions, the Ross operation and variants, and complex reconstructions. A final section presents potential future directions for the field. Over 400 illustrations, created expressly for this book, depict the surgical techniques from the perspective of the surgeon standing at the operating table. All surgeons performing pediatric and/or adult valve replacements and reconstructive cardiac surgeries will benefit from the described methods. Cardiothoracic residents and cardiologists will also find the text useful. It will provide the surgeon with an enhanced understanding of the biological and material properties of allografts and increased familiarity with the range of surgical techniques applicable for the use of these valves, particularly in the successful management of challenging cardiac reconstructions.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ralph J. Damiano, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This update of the 1989 book, Cardiac Reconstruction of Allograft Valves, has been extensively revised and improved. This is an authoritative review of the field and includes an excellent history, a review of the major clinical series, excellent sections on the basic biology of heart valves and their preservation, as well as a description of surgical techniques.
Purpose: The purpose is to review the field of cardiac reconstruction with allograft tissues with an emphasis on recent advances in our understanding of the fundamental biology as well as a review of surgical techniques. These worthy objectives are well met in this superb book.
Audience: This book is targeted to adult and pediatric cardiac surgeons who perform valve replacement and reconstructive cardiac surgery. Residents would find the section on surgical techniques very helpful, but it would be of little interest to cardiologists. The author is a world authority in the field.
Features: This is an exhaustive review of the field. It contains excellent sections on the basic biology of heart valves and their preservation and banking, written by experts in this area. The references are up-to-date and comprehensive. The sections reviewing the large clinical series are excellent and provide a beautiful framework for the history and progress that has occurred in this area. The final sections on surgical techniques are clearly written and beautifully illustrated. They represent a unique contribution to the literature.
Assessment: This is a superb and unique textbook that will be an invaluable resource to any surgeon who performs valve surgery and reconstruction. This book stands alone as the premier reference text in the field.
