About this book

Heart failure is a problem of epidemic proportions in all parts of the world.

Management of Heart Failure, Volume 2: Surgical will be essential reading for all specialists dealing with patients with or who are at risk of heart failure, including but not limited to cardiologists, emergency medicine physicians, critical care physicians, anesthesiologists, interventionalists and cardiothoracic surgeons.
