Reviews

Reviews of previous editions: 'This book continues to be an indispensable source of information, not only for the cardiac surgeon but also for cardiologists, anaesthesiologists, and surgical pathologists. The information contained is invaluable and therefore the book should be recommended to any professional dealing with the heart, first of all of course to the cardiac surgeon regardless of his or her proficiency. Besides perfect descriptions of the normal anatomy of the heart, the main focus of this textbook is congenital malformations, and in this respect it is still unsurpassed.' European Surgery
