“The audience is cardiothoracic surgery residents and attending surgeons, as well as cardiologists, although intended more for the surgery professionals. … This is a useful recap of aortic valve repair and is helpful in continuing the discussion of repair techniques for this often-replaced valve.” (Stephen Michael Spindel, Doody's Book Reviews, August 02, 2019)
