The raison d’etre for a new atlas of congenital heart surgery is based on the reality that the specialty has undergone numerous changes in the last few years resulting in improved techniques and new operations. The sheer number of new procedures and the required attendant technical skills to successfully complete an operation has become a challenge to master, especially for residents who are pursuing a career in congenital heart surgery. While the techniques that we are espousing are mostly our own, there is a great deal of similarity amongst international centers owing to the influence of video presentations, manuscript publications, and chapter reviews. We therefore believe that the techniques that are illustrated in this atlas are likely to be similar to the techniques that are taught worldwide to residents and fellows. The atlas is organized generally by diseases and procedures pertaining thereto. Two general sections involve cannulation techniques and palliative procedures, respectively. A special section depicts difficult problems in the form of clinical vignettes that may arise during cardiopulmonary bypass such as: decreased venous return, undiagnosed patent ductus arteriosus, and technical errors leading to hemodynamic complications. The reader is instructed to apply measures that will lead to resolution of these problems. We have chosen procedures, which cover the breadth of congenital heart surgery. While perhaps not totally inclusive, the reader will find the greater majority of congenital heart procedures illustrated and explained in this text.​

Written by an expert author team at the renowned Boston Children's Hospital, USA, The Pediatric Cardiac Anesthesia Handbook provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of the anesthetic management of pediatric patients with congenital heart disease. This book is divided into two parts. The first part provides an introduction to the basic assessment of patients, including cardiovascular physiology, pathophysiology and the underlying concepts in coronary heart disease, preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management, and interpretation of cardiac catheterization data. The second part of the book addresses disorders and diseases in a templated manner covering the anatomical and physiological features, surgical therapies, anesthetic approach and postoperative management. Chapters on the heart and heart and lung transplantation consider the additional complexities of those patients and anesthetic considerations for non-cardiac surgery after heart transplantation. The anesthesiologist caring for patients with congenital heart disease faces a myriad of challenges in the perioperative management of these complex individuals. This book provides: A concise and easily referable guide ideal for use during anesthesiology residency training and fellowships. A templated chapter layout ideal for easy referral by wider members of the multidisciplinary team, such as cardiologists, cardiac intensivists, perfusionists, and surgeons. Helpful illustrations and a bulleted content for rapid reference. Guidelines on specific lesions for the pediatric anesthesiologist caring for cardiac patients presenting for non-cardiac surgery. This book is a valuable resource for all anesthesiology and cardiac critical care providers who manage patients with congenital heart disease, and an ideal study aid.

A handbook of operating techniques in cardiac surgery

I find it useful even now to revise my notes before I sleep on the night before a challenging case. This handbook was derived from that habit, and it will help you see what unique things I saw during my training in India.

Every member of the surgical team usually has a personal journal with notes and diagrams. I too have always put all I appreciated into my little notebook of diagrams and notes, whenever I learned anything valuable in a case. I find it useful even now to revise my notes before I sleep on the night before a challenging case. This handbook was derived from that habit, and it will help you see what unique things I saw during my training in India. We all know that there are deficiencies in learning cardiac surgery from books, a single surgical tutor or a small institute doing less work. By giving you concisely all the basic steps of each operation, we aim to make the team’s training period a lot easier, the learning curve shorter and you will then be a more confident cardiac surgical trainee. This, I hope, will help your mentor find you as a very capable person to teach. Cheers and all the very best!

This text describes and illustrates with some 700 detailed anatomic and surgical drawings the whole spectrum of surgical procedures employed to treat acquired and congenital diseases of the heart and great vessels in adults and children. A rather traditional chapter on history of cardiac surgery precedes chapters dedicated to quality improvement, followed by ICU management in adult and pediatric cardiac surgery, and techniques of extracorporeal circulation in both age groups. Further special topics are cardiovascular tissue engineering, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, endovascular treatment of aortic diseases, and cardiac assist devices, including total artificial heart. Written by 71 internationally recognized experts from 40 cardiac units in Central Europe and North America, this book will be invaluable not only for both novice and experienced surgeons, but also for all physicians, nurses, and technicians caring for patients with heart disease of any type, at any age.

An estimated 30,000 children are born in the USA with congenital heart disease each year, two thirds of which will require corrective surgery. Medical advances have formed a trend of operating on newborns rather than waiting until the child is older. Ten years ago, the mortality for these operationswas 60% to 70%. That percentage has dropped to 2%. This specialized book explores the basic mechanisms of neurologic injury associated with congenital heart surgery while covering the emerging technologies for assessment of neurologic integrity and injury. The text also highlights the current and future techniques for reducing and preventing these injuries, and reviews the pertinent medicolegal issues.
