It thoroughly covers the full range of new.
Oxford, England: How can you improve or expand on what is arguably the premier textbook on adult and pediatric cardiac surgery? These five authors have taken on the challenge and have accomplished the task with great success. This third edition is by far one of the finest books on the subject, and it covers all aspects of cardiac surgery. It is with great care in the writing that the authors have preserved the initial intent of the original authors, John Kirklin and Sir Brian Barratt-Boyes, to create a definitive reference for all of those involved in the speciality of cardiac surgery.
Although it does not provide a quick summary, this book provides a very in-depth detailed description of anatomy, pathophysiology, clinical approaches, and procedures. The textbook is divided into two volumes. Volume one has four sections with 24 chapters. Volume two continues with 31 chapters in three sections.
The format of the book begins with chapters on anatomy, cardiopulmonary bypass, anesthesia considerations, postoperative care, and epidemiology. These chapters lay the groundwork on which the remainder of the book builds. The following sections on ischemic heart disease, acquired valvar heart disease, and congenital heart disease provide the reader with the most precise information on any given clinical scenario. The chapters discuss the historical importance of specific diseases or therapies and then expand into the current approach to these disease processes or treatment modalities.
The current edition adds new chapters on acquired diseases of the systemic veins, diseases of the pulmonary arteries, and infective endocarditis.
Additionally, multiple illustrations of surgical techniques have been updated and improved on from the previous editions. The authors include current philosophies and approaches to the ever-changing practice of cardiac surgery, in particular the emergence of minimally invasive and percutaneous techniques.
The authors also provide the clinical and scientific evidence on which treatment rationales should be based. Attention to detail in every section of this book confirms that it is the foremost authority on cardiac surgery.
It also describes how the reader can pursue research challenges and opportunities. This chapter is beneficial to all physicians and not just to cardiac surgeons. Overall, this book remains the definitive source for adult and pediatric cardiac surgery. Surgeons in training will find this book very complete and somewhat encyclopedic. Experienced cardiac surgeons will likewise find this to be a valuable reference tool with new updates and current therapies. The famous trio of trauma surgeons—Ernest E.
Mattox—again delivers a comprehensive text, including the basics as well as the latest issues in trauma. This work begins with a chapter on the history and evolution of trauma management. A fascinating tour takes the reader from BC, through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, to the present.
Included in the first chapter is a look into the future of trauma, emphasizing the legislative, societal, and systemic issues facing modern traumatology. The book systematically describes all aspects of trauma patient care. The text is divided into 6 sections. Here, the authors discuss pre-hospital care, kinematics of trauma, airway and circulatory management, diagnostic and interventional techniques, and various other topics.
The book next explores the diagnosis and treatment of specific injuries, covering every body system from head to toe. Each chapter concludes with an exceptionally complete list of references as well as an expert commentary.
Of particular interest is an entire chapter dedicated to trauma damage control. Special topics then follow, with chapters dedicated to pediatric and geriatric trauma, alcohol and drug problems, bite and sting injuries, burns, and various other topics.
I found particularly interesting the chapter on genetic and genomic aspects of the inflammatory response. The chapter on rehabilitation is both very informative and practical. The next section covers the management of complications after traumatic injury. Here, principles of critical care, failure of various organ systems, nutritional support, and bleeding and coagulopathy are described in great detail.
The last and briefest section centers on medicolegal and legislative issues in trauma. High-Resolution CT of the Lung.
