This new edition recognizes the increasing subspecialization in surgery by positioning the book for the specialist cardiac surgeon. The work is a major revision edited by two well-respected American surgeons and includes a host of prestigious international contributors. The scope of the book is fully up-to-date with modern practice, including descriptions of minimally invasive and 'off-pump' procedures. Each procedure is illustrated by a series of step-by-step full colour line illustrations of exceptional quality - consistently cited in market research as the best method of demonstrating surgical method - with detailed notes on operative technique. Additional text describes the principles and justification of choosing each procedure, preoperative assessment and preparation including anaesthetic aspects, postoperative care and outcomes.

Redo cardiac surgeries are challenging cases with a myriad of influential factors, ranging from the patient's pathology to the whimsy of the previous surgeon.

It covers the spectrum of redo cardiac operations, including coronary artery bypass, mitral valve repair, reoperation for prosthetic mitral valve endocarditis, aortic arch reoperation, descending and thoracoabdominal aortic reoperation, and reoperations following endovascular aortic repair. All redo cardiac surgeries present a complex array of challenges beyond what the original procedure demands. This book, written by an outstanding group of prominent physicians, will give the reader the knowledge and tools to approach these cases with confidence.

Historian Daniel J. Boorstin has said, "Trying to plan for the future without a sense of the past is like trying to plant cut flowers." This reissue of Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery, endorsed by today's experts and with a new preface by Denton A. Cooley, M.D., Surgeon-in-Chief, Texas Heart Institute, is especially timely in this era of transition to interventional and hybrid procedures. No matter what the technical advances are, the same principles that facilitate successful outcomes in surgery (teamwork, communication, vigilance, simplicity and standardization of techniques, anticipation of the next step) will apply equally to today's hybrid procedures and to those who perform them. A best-seller in its field when first issued, Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery has since become a resource for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Network's safety reporting system ( and has become the template used by CTSNet as a teaching tool for the anonymous reporting of near-disasters in the field by cardiac surgeons from around the world. Written in the second person present tense so that the reader becomes the surgeon on the spot, this reissue of Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery, although it reads like a medical thriller, is really a textbook of cardiac surgical complications, their management, and prevention. With its cogent analyses, discussions, and pertinent references, Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery will introduce a new generation of cardiac surgical residents and fellows, as well as more experienced surgeons, cardiologists, interventionalists, anesthesiologists, medical students, and nurses, to principles that are as timeless as they are essential.
