This book lives up to the promise of its title. It is written in a style that will appeal to surgeons: fluent, concise, focused. Detailed surgical knowledge is imparted effortlessly in every chapter of this beautifully illustrated book. For training cardiac surgeons this book explains the subject more clearly than any other I have read...For paediatric cardiologists, perfusionists and intensivists this could be invaluable in promoting greater understanding of the conditions they are involved in treating, and understanding the surgeons' perspective.
This book is a display of superior individual knowledge - virtually encyclopaedic. The most difficult technical procedures are described with accuracy, in simple terms that reflect the skills and talents of a masterful surgeon. Any congenital cardiac surgeon, any surgical trainee interested in congenital cardiac surgery, will consult this book with great pleasure.

The accompanying text follows the diagrams in a logical, sequential fashion. The diagrams are such that it is relatively straightforward to envisage the surgical repair during an actual procedure. The book would be invaluable on a Congenital Heart Surgeon's bookshelf and also to Trainees in Cardiac Surgery and others involved in the management of children with congenital heart lesions.
It was a pleasure to review this book.
The book would be invaluable on a Congenital Heart Surgeon's bookshelf and also to Trainees in Cardiac Surgery and others involved in the management of children with congenital heart lesions. This book represents a concise overview of the current surgical approach to many congenital heart lesions. I feel it represents excellent value. It is perhaps worth remarking that I bought this book myself before the copy arrived for review.

This book is an excellent resource for many disciplines: general surgeons, anaethetists, intensivists, perfusionists and cardiologists, as well as congenital cardiac surgeons. Its practical approach makes it accessible yet comprehensive for practitioners of all grades.

The management of congenital heart disease has changed dramatically over the last 15 years and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. More than ever before contemporary practice requires a collaborative effort by a large healthcare team comprised not only of congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians. All of these individuals need to have a clear understanding of the morphology and pathophysiology of congenital heart disease as well as the surgical manipulations that take place in the operating room.
This textbook describes in detail the current practice in congenital heart surgery of Richard A Jonas and the team from Harvard Medical School in Boston with whom he worked closely for many years. The book includes numerous beautiful illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. However, this is much more than an operative atlas that illustrates how an operation should be done; it also incorporates an evidence-based approach, supported throughout by numerous scientific citations, to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits and potential complications.
