The full spectrum of surgical therapies is covered, from the more conventional techniques of coronary artery bypass, valve replacement, left ventricular aneurysm resection and transplantation to the new technique of ventriculectomy. The future of permanent mechanical hearts and xenotransplantation is also discussed. The authors include an international panel of experts with recognized expertise in their fields. [via]
