Explore the leading textbook of pediatric cardiac surgery in this easy-to-read and beautifully illustrated volume

The field of pediatric cardiovascular surgery includes not only heart surgery for infants and children, but also adult heart surgery to correct congenital heart defects which have been present since birth. As infant mortality from heart defects declines and patients with congenital heart defects live increasingly long and healthy lives, new challenges emerge and as such, the need for introductions to this life-saving field has never been greater.

For more than thirty years, Pediatric Cardiac Surgery has met this need with an accessible, comprehensive textbook used by professionals at every level of the field. Featuring full color illustrations, this book offers an introduction to the science of cardiovascular development before moving to detailed analysis of defects in different areas of the heart and their corrective procedures. This updated fifth edition incorporates the latest science to remain the indispensable work on this subject.

In Pediatric Cardiac Surgery, 5th edition readers will also find:

Contributions from over 75 national and international experts in the field
Stunning anatomical illustrations by Rachid Idriss
New chapters reflecting cutting-edge research, as well as new material throughout pertaining to cardiac imaging and medical education

Pediatric Cardiac Surgery is essential for pediatric and adult cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, and all medical professionals working with pediatric or adult cardiovascular patients.
