State of the Art Surgical Coronary Revascularization is the most authoritative textbook ever dedicated to the art and science of surgical coronary revascularization, with 71 chapters, organized in 9 sections, and written by over 100 recognized world experts. It covers every aspect of the surgical management of coronary artery pathology and ischaemic heart disease. It provides extensive sections detailing pathophysiology, evaluation and medical and percutaneous management of ischaemic heart disease as well general outcomes and quality assessment for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).
Pre-, intra- and postoperative management of CABG patients is emphasized in detail as are the core surgical principles in the conduct of CABG, with special focus on the selection of conduits and how to optimize the performance of both on- and off-pump surgery to reduce morbidity and mortality. There are detailed sections on how to improve outcomes with both arterial and venous bypass grafts.
This comprehensive textbook also covers in detail less invasive approaches for CABG, CABG in special clinical situations and when CABG is combined with concomitant surgical procedures. In addition to underpinning all chapters with a strong and updated evidence basis, crucial practical surgical techniques are emphasised throughout, making this textbook the indispensable companion of all adult cardiac surgeons and allied health professionals interested in surgical coronary revascularization.
