A comprehensive review by renowned authorities of the many exciting developments occurring across the rapidly emerging field of "minimally invasive" or "minimal access" cardiac surgery. The book's distinguished panel of contributors presents the interventional cardiologists perspective, spells out the key factors for success in beating-heart coronary bypass grafting through limited incisions, and surveys the various methods of harvesting the internal thoracic artery. Other topics treated include immobilization of the surgical field, minimal access valve and congenital surgery, alternative methods of anastomosis, and port-access coronary bypass grafting. Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery summarizes all the latest findings on the powerful new techniques, as well as the results, of minimally invasive coronary surgery, including valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and coronary revascularization.
The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
This book provides the state-of-the-art developments in the field of "minimally invasive" or "minimal access" cardiac surgery. Organized into three major sections, the first section, Physiology of Injury, consists of a basic science review of the pathophysiological mechanisms underlying cardiopulmonary bypass and endothelial injury. The second section, Less Invasive Approaches to Coronary Bypass Grafting, is the most extensive section in the book, and has contributions from the pioneers of the various surgical techniques including videoscopic and thoracoscopic approaches. The final section addresses growing areas of less invasive cardiac surgery including valvular and congenital heart operation.
