This new volume in the user-friendly Current Therapy format details the latest management techniques for over 200 clinical conditions encountered by cardiothoracic surgeons. It also features valuable advice on assessment, imaging, perioperative care, incisions, anesthesia, and more. Each chapter offers the guidance of a noted authority and includes carefully selected references for further study. Concise text packed with "high yield" information allows clinicians to review more in less time, making this the perfect choice for board preparation or as a "refresher" before procedures.
