The management of congenital heart disease has changed dramatically over the last decade and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. More than ever before contemporary practice requires a collaborative effort by a large healthcare team comprised not only of congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians. All of these individuals need to have a clear understanding of the morphology and pathophysiology of congenital heart disease as well as the surgical manipulations that take place in the operating room. This new edition of Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Diseasehas been fully updated to incorporate all the recent developments in the current practice of congenital heart surgery. The book includes numerous anatomical illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. As well as providing an operative atlas that illustrates how an operation should be performed, it also incorporates an evidence-based approach to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits and potential complications. "This book is a display of superior individual knowledge - virtually encyclopaedic. The most difficult technical procedures are described with accuracy that reflect the skills and talents of a masterful surgeon. Any congenital cardiac surgeon, any surgical trainee interested in congenital cardiac surgery, will consult this book with great pleasure." (Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, about the last edition)
