The real strength of this volume is the depiction of intracardiac pathologic anatomy. I have never seen it done better...this book will fill a void in the educational materials available to help bridge the gap between what the novitiate imagines a congenital lesion to be and how it truly appears...Cardiothoracic residents should look at it frequently and consider it for their personal library. Older and more experienced surgeons will enjoy reading it...'- From Annals of Surgery on the First Edition. This Thorough revision of Color Atlas of Congenital Heart Surgery features 700 vividly reproduced full-color, intraoperative images, taken by the author, Dr. S. Bert Litwin, with a special side-mounted flash to convey exquisite perception of depth in the operative field. In twenty-three comprehensive chapters, Dr. Litwin presents surgical techniques for the full spectrum of cardiac congenital anomalies, including revised and updated text on such topics as repair of straddling tricuspid valve associated with the posterior ventricular septal defect, transaortic repair of outlet ventricular septal defect, double patch closure of the low muscular ventricular septal defects, extracardiac conduit repair in the completion Fontan procedure, recruitment of multiple pulmonary arteries in the repair of pulmonary atresia, updated techniques for repair of hypoplastic left heart syndrome, and extended end-to-end anastomosis for coarctation repair. Throughout the text, the photographs provide vivid representation of three-dimensional spatial relations of congenital anomalies and surgical anatomy. Each photograph is carefully labeled to indicate the patient's right side, left side, cephalad, caudad, anterior and posterior. An indispensable tool for both the established surgeon and the trainee, this atlas provides a comprehensive compendium of complex cardiothoracic surgical anatomy, the pathology of congenital.
