"[Surgery] still remains one of the most challenging aspects of human endevour, because there is no other field of human endeavor in which one not only has the opportunity to develop conceptually the understanding of the process, but then to apply the results of that understanding in a very practical way with one's own hands to relieve the suffering in man." Dr. Michael E. DeBakey states, at the International Surgical Society Meeting, that most developments in cardiovascular surgery, in both diagnosis and therapy, have resulted from the "noble endeavor" of the surgeon. This book presents the current and future trends of cardiovascular surgery, as well as progress in research in the fields. Symposia cover the major topics of surgery for arteriosclerotic occlusive disease, dissecting aneurysm, transportation of great vessels, and controversy on PTCA and CABG. New findings in clinical and experimental data are added to the concise summary of remarkable progress in cardiovascular surgery achieved over the last twenty years.
