A comprehensive review by renowned authorities of the many exciting developments occurring across the rapidly emerging field of "minimally invasive" or "minimal access" cardiac surgery. The book's distinguished panel of contributors presents the interventional cardiologists perspective, spells out the key factors for success in beating-heart coronary bypass grafting through limited incisions, and surveys the various methods of harvesting the internal thoracic artery. Other topics treated include immobilization of the surgical field, minimal access valve and congenital surgery, alternative methods of anastomosis, and port-access coronary bypass grafting. Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery summarizes all the latest findings on the powerful new techniques, as well as the results, of minimally invasive coronary surgery, including valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, and coronary revascularization.

Editorial Reviews

"The strength of this book is the excellent quality of the contributors. It is also unique in that it not only covers present minimally invasive techniques, but provides the physiologic justification for their development, with excellent chapters on the pathophysiology of cardiopulmonary bypass and endothelial injury. There is also an excellent chapter comparing minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting with percutaneous interventions. . . There are also chapters looking into the future, particularly into alternative approaches to vascular anastomoses and device-supported myocardial revascularization. . .This is a superb contribution to the literature and is perhaps the most concise and comprehensive review of the field of MICS to date. It is must reading for surgeons interested in this field. "-4 Stars, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"Mehmet Oz and Daniel Goldstein have succeeded in providing a timely review of an important new arena in cardiac surgery. . .The book is divided into 3 major sections. The 1st contains an excellent review of the pathophysiologic reactions to cardiac bypass, ischemia and reperfusion, and endothelial cell injury. . .In the 2nd section, the authors present a broad overview of subjects pertaining to less invasive approaches to coronary bypass grafting. . .The final section of the book explores the application of less-invasive approaches to valvular and congenital heart operations by means of limited sternal or thoracic incisions. . .Each contribution is authoritative, well-illustrated, and supported by clinically relevant patient information. . .We are indebted to Drs. Oz and Goldstein for providing this timely resource."-Texas Heart Institute Journal
