Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"It is a well-recognized axiom that to perform a good operative procedure, the surgeon must first be thoroughly familiar with normal anatomy as well as common variants. . One can only speculate on the time required to prepare these magnificent specimens, which are further complemented by superb photography. . Operative Anatomy of the Heart is clearly an important and valuable reference and as such should be available to all residents and fellows in cardiothoracic surgery as well as all practicing cardiothoracic surgeons." (Fred A. Crawford Jr., Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (19), 2011)
