James C. Fang, MD, and Gregory S. Couper, MD, have assembled a panel of prominent surgeons and cardiologists to review the latest clinical, scientific, and investigational surgical and mechanical approaches to heart failure in hopes of improving the lives of this challenging group of patients. Topics range from such traditional strategies as high-risk surgical revascularization in advanced coronary artery disease, to more novel approaches such as ventricular reconstruction and mechanical assist devices. Many chapters are contributed by the original pioneers of specific surgical techniques, which provide s invaluable perspective from personal experience.

Editorial Reviews

"Although much work has been done in this area, a concise book summarizing all the issues has not been previously available. A book dedicated to this topic is a welcome addition to the literature. This is a great book for all those involved in the caring of patients with ventricular failure. The book delineates surgical options and current thinking for the management of these patients." Weighted Numerical Score: 91 - 4 Stars! - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"...a most up-to-date review and each chapter has an extensive list of references...should find a place on the shelf of the library in every cardiac unit." - Cardiology News
