This book offers a comprehensive overview of the various off-pump coronary artery bypass techniques. This book is divided into two sections. After introductory chapters on evolution and history, detailed evidence-based discussion of technical aspects and applications of off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting in different settings is presented. Written by experts from leading institutions around the world, this superb compilation focuses on mastery of operative techniques and also provides a thorough understanding of how to select the best procedure, how to avoid complications, and what outcomes to expect. The user-friendly format is ideal for quick preoperative review of the steps of a procedure. The editors and authors are recognized experts in off-pump surgery, and draw on their vast experience to provide a book that will serve not only as a basic manual for cardiac surgeons, both practicing as well as in-training, but also as an invaluable compendium of readily understood information for cardiologists, anesthetists, intensivists, nurses and general practitioners.
