"The latest edition of Cardiac Surgery in the Adult is a valuable addition to the existing literature on adult cardiac surgery. Compared to the previous edition, the new edition provides a much greater insight into the complex speciality of cardiac surgery. Part I, with core chapters, not only caters to the needs of practicing cardiac surgeons and internees, but also is applicable to the broad audience of medical professionals who care for patients with cardiac disease. The remaining chapters (Parts II-VII) discuss specific topics in a comprehensive style. Cross references are an excellent feature of this online edition for which the Publishers as well as the editors deserve a lot of praise. Congratulations to all for an excellent effort, and keep up the good work."
