Summary Myocardial protection is regarded as one of the most important, yet also controversial aspects of cardiac surgery. This book is intended to embrace the state of the art in this field. There has been considerable improvement in myocardial protection strategies over the years utilizing a variety of new approaches to treat cardiac diseases. This book summarizes the state of knowledge on all aspects of myocardial protection including the latest in the treatment of cardiac diseases, robotics, pediatric surgery and the treatment of cardiac failure. The purpose of this book is to update physicians and surgeons interested in the field of cardiac surgery on the current state of knowledge on myocardial protection. Includes up-to-date knowledge on myocardial protection Robotoic surgery, valvular surgery, pediatric surgery and coronary surgery are all covered Provides a futuristic view of the field of myocardial protection written by world experts
