This text provides step-by-step visual guidance on all aspects of heart-lung transplantation. Operative techniques for the accepted modality of cardiac transplantation are depicted here from the viewpoint of the surgeon. The atlas features a unique format with emphasis on large, well-developed, full colour graphics and operative photographs, all used to demonstrate the integral steps in operative techniques. Where necessary, biochemistry, histology, surgical anatomy, physiology, pathology and operative technique are detailed. The atlas functions as a teaching aid, a source of surgical techniques and as a rapid reference for surgeons and cardiologists learning various techniques.
