Summary This clinical casebook is comprised of surgical cases involving the most important cardiovascular diseases in a concise, easy-to-read format. Each chapter is a case that opens with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management techniques used to treat it. Additionally, each chapter features a section of questions and answers about relevant aspects related to the diagnosis and treatment of the addressed disease. It features 40 surgical cases in the following thematic areas: Aortic Disease, Arrhythmias, Cardiac Tumors, Coronary Insufficiency, Congenital Heart Disease, Endovascular Therapies, Heart Failure, Heart Transplantation, Mechanical Circulatory Support, Pericardial Disease, Pulmonary Embolism and Valvular Heart Disease. Cardiovascular Surgery? A Clinical Casebook provides excellent real-world strategies regarding the diagnosis and surgical approach to heart diseases.
