About this book

Introduction

This heavily revised second edition of this book provides a comprehensive overview of both common and rarely performed thoracic surgical techniques. Techniques covered include thymectomy, left and right lower lobectomy, rib resection for empyema, median sternotomy and lung biopsies. Emphasis is focused on the practical steps necessary to successfully and reliably perform the techniques covered, while acknowledgement is also given to individual variations in how these techniques are performed.

Thoracic Surgical Techniques provides a detailed clinical illustrative guide for successfully performing a range of procedures reliably. Its large number of detailed illustrations and concise technical descriptions provides an invaluable resource for all practising and trainee thoracic surgeons

About the authors

Mr Coonar has been a consultant at Papworth since 2007 and his practice is in pure thoracic surgery. He works closely with a large team including other surgeons, specialist nurses, radiologists and physicians. Mr Coonar was appointed President of the Royal Society of Medicine Cardiothoracic Section in December 2013.

He handles benign diseases and cancer. His main clinical interests are minimally invasive surgery (video-assisted, endoscopic and others), lung cancer surgery (including advanced cases and patients with poor lung function), mesothelioma surgery, chest wall surgery, airway surgery, lung volume reduction surgery, surgery for thoracic sarcoma and resection of metastatic cancer to the chest.

Initially trained in London and the United States, Mr Wells has worked at Papworth Hospital as a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon since 1986. His specialist area of cardiac surgical interest is the management of all forms of heart valve disease, especially mitral valve reconstruction.

Mr Wells has the largest experience in the United Kingdom and among the largest in the world with over 3,000 cases completed achieving a near 100% repair rate for leaking mitral valves with mortality at less than 1.0% for first time procedures. His aim is to achieve a normally functioning valve. He also has an interest in aortic valve repair and surgery of the aorta.

In his thoracic practice, Mr Wells offers a full range of surgical procedures for lung cancer and all benign diseases in the chest. This includes hyperhydrosis, thoracic outlet syndrome and pectus deformities.

Reviews

“This is a comprehensive review of common thoracic surgical procedures including some rarely performed in general practice. This is a welcome and extensively revised second edition of the original 1990 publication. … This is a superb reference for practicing surgeons or an instruction resource for trainees and students interested in the field of thoracic surgery. The authors are established professors of surgery dedicated to the practice and teaching of thoracic surgery.” (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2019)​
