Surgical Anatomy of the Heart by Benson R. Wilcox
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the latest edition of what has become a classic textbook on cardiac anatomy. The new edition will be of interest not only to the surgeon, but also to the cardiologist, anaesthesiologist and surgical pathologist. Chapter One introduces the surgical approaches to the heart, and will help to orientate the reader to the illustrations and detailed descriptions that follow. Topics covered include the normal surgical anatomy of the cardiac chambers, heart valves, and the system for circulation and conduction within the heart. It provides the essential anatomical knowledge required to assess and interpret the malformations, lesions, abnormalities, and positional anomalies discussed and illustrated in detail. Full colour surgical and pathological photographs accompany almost all of the anatomical descriptions, and detailed labelling enhances the user-friendly nature of the book. Detailed colour line diagrams generated specifically for the book also help to explain concepts and simplify complex descriptions.
