In this updated and expanded edition of Goldstein and Oz's much-praised classic survey, world experts comprehensively review the many innovations and changes that have occurred in the practice of minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS). The authors summarize the latest findings and results regarding such novel techniques as robotic surgery, hybrid revascularization, the use of off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (OPCABG) in high-risk populations, and new less invasive surgical approaches to the treatment of atrial fibrillation. They also provide a medium-term update on the current status of MICS in dealing with valvular and congenital heart disease and offer a more comprehensive understanding of procedures like mid-CABGs with longer-term followup and randomized data to help tease out real benefits and limitations. In addition, the book addresses the economic impact of MICS and quality-of-life issues, and shows how surgeons are not only performing the old operations with new tools, but are also creating new procedures precisely adapted to the new tools. With its state-of-the-art descriptions of each of the relevant procedures, Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, Second Edition should be in the libraries of all cardiac surgery residency program directors, as well as in the pockets of all their training and graduating surgery residents
