The most authoritative, comprehensive, and clinicallyfocused guide to operative thoracic surgery--updatedwith the latest techniques and technologies

Adult Chest Surgery is a thorough, hands-on guide to the modern practice of general thoracic surgery. Broad in scope and straightforward in style and presentation, this classic is an outstanding reference for any clinician in need of a comprehensive description ofthe clinical nature of general thoracic surgery.

Like its award-winning predecessor, the second edition of Adult Chest Surgery focuses on providing concise descriptions of current techniques and surgical principles for the most common thoracic surgical problems encountered in the clinic and the operating room. This edition is enhanced by 40 new chapters devoted to a range of topics including new endoscopic techniques for antireflux surgery; percutaneous thoracic tumor ablation; peroral esophageal myotomy; robotic techniques for lobectomy, esophagectomy, and thymectomy; and other new minimally invasive approaches to standard thoracic resections. It is also enriched by more than 250 new detailed illustrations of procedures, bringing the total number to 850.

Adult Chest Surgery features a logical organization based on anatomy, and each section has an overview chapter, which summarizes the relevant anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnostic and procedural options. Throughout, operations and diagnostic procedures are highlighted in succinct, illustrated technique chapters.
