"The information is presented as a concise, bulleted text accompanied by numerous illustrations, tables and flow charts.The book includes technical details, common pitfalls and clinical interpretation...I would highly recommennd it not only to cardiac surgeons and cardiac anasthesists, but also to echocardiographers. This is a wonderful overview of the vast pathology and diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas encountered in the management of the adult cardiac surgical patient."
