Arterial Grafting for Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery / Edition 2 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer Berlin Heidelberg
The second edition of this book provides updated knowledge about the biological characteristics and clinical use of arterial grafts for coronary artery bypass surgery. The reader will find first-hand information on arterial grafts as well as vein grafts with regard to biological characteristics, clinical use including off-pump coronary bypass grafting surgery, results, and future developments. Written by world-renowned cardiac surgeons and cardiovascular research scientists working in this area, the book will be invaluable both as a practical guide and as a stimulus for further improvement of arterial grafting techniques and technology.
