The most up-to-date, comprehensives single-volume guide to adult, congenital, and general cardiothoracic surgery -- from many of the foremost experts in the field

Developed by authorities from leading-edge cardiothoracic surgical training programs, this much-needed reference succinctly reviews a wide-range of important topics in cardiothoracic surgery. The Johns Hopkins Manual of Cardiothoracic Surgery is especially timely given the recent development of many new scientific findings and emerging technologies. You'll find it filled with precise information on surgical techniques and pre-and postoperative strategies for managing cardiothoracic disease.

In this time-saving sourcebook, you'll get an in-depth look at the full spectrum of disorders and their surgical (and medical) management options, including congenital, acquired, and neoplastic diseases. Supporting this detailed coverage is an easy-to-navigate format featuring focused tables and outline-formatted bullets, along with step-by-step explanations of the most complex operations.


  • Thorough coverage of all major areas of cardiothoracic surgery-perfect for cardiothoracic surgery fellows getting ready for Board review exams (oral and written), and cardiothoracic surgeons preparing for Board certification or recertification
  • Skill-building perspectives on open, minimally invasive, and endovascular surgical procedures-complete with relevant surgical anatomy
  • Indications and techniques for heart and lung transplantation
  • Balanced, detailed presentation of both pediatric and adult patient care issues
  • Innovative chapters on surgical ventricular remodeling, endovascular repair of thoracic aortic pathologies, correction of complex congenital defects, and thoracic oncology that reflect the most promising new surgical technologies
  • “Key Concepts” boxes throughout focus on important “take-home” messages of chapter topics
  • Expert authorship, with most chapters written by current or past faculty and trainees from The John Hopkins Hospital

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ralph J. Damiano, MD (Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: This is a comprehensive review of adult and congenital cardiothoracic surgery that is meant to serve as a core reference for those in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an all-inclusive review of cardiothoracic surgery. This is a worthy objective and the authors have provided a concise review that is well written and relatively complete.
Audience: The book is principally written for cardiothoracic surgeons and residents. The contributors are all experts in their field.
Features: The authors attempt to cover all aspects of adult and congenital cardiothoracic surgery. A very nice feature is that each chapter begins with a "Key Concepts" section that students and residents will find helpful. Excellent chapters cover cardiac imaging, the anatomy of congenital cardiac malformations, pulmonary physiology. The authors have made a point of including evolving technologies when appropriate. The main shortcoming of the book is the very poor quality of some of the illustrations. This detracts from the text and is distracting to the reader. There are also a number of weak chapters, such as the one on minimally invasive cardiac surgery and mitral valve disease. In an attempt to be comprehensive, there is a too cursory treatment of some important topics (i.e., mitral repair) and glaring omission of other subjects (i.e., surgery for atrial fibrillation).
Assessment: This is a well written book that provides a comprehensive overview of the field. Practicing surgeons will likely find that it provides too little information, especially on the technical aspects of surgery and the controversial areas, to be particularly useful. The book will be most helpful to residents looking for a relatively brief review of cardiothoracic surgery. The poor quality of the illustrations is the principal weakness of the book.
