The revised fourth edition of this classic textbook on cardiac anatomy written from the stance of the cardiac surgeon features many new images, including computed tomography angiography. The provision of multiple high quality surgical and pathological photographs makes it essential reading for cardiac surgeons, and of great value to cardiologists, surgical pathologists, radiologists and anaesthetists. The book will also be a valuable reference resource for any healthcare professional or researcher who needs to understand detailed cardiac anatomy. The book begins by describing the surgical approaches to the heart. It goes on to discuss the normal surgical anatomy of the cardiac chambers, the valves, and the systems for circulation and conduction within the heart. This provides the essential anatomical information required to assess and interpret the malformations, lesions and abnormalities discussed in the remainder of the book.show more

Review quote

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 '... beautiful illustrations and excellent writing make a book that can be strongly recommended to anybody seriously interested in the practice of cardiac surgery.' British Journal of Surgery 'This is an unusual and extremely valuable text for anyone who wants to perform their job at their peak level in the critically important medical specialty of cardiology.'
