Springer; 2nd edition
This thoroughly updated and expanded second version of the ebook titled Thoracic Surgical Techniques offers a comprehensive review of thoracic surgical procedures that are either infrequently or frequently carried out. A thymectomy, rib resection for empyema, left and right lower lobectomy, median sternotomy, and lung biopsies are some of the procedures that are discussed in this article. In this section, the practical procedures required to properly and reliably implement the techniques mentioned are highlighted, and while acknowledgement is given to individual variances in how these techniques are performed, the emphasis is on the actual actions themselves.
Thoracic Surgical Techniques, 2nd Edition provides a comprehensive clinical illustration guide for successfully conducting a number of procedures reliably. This guide is available in PDF format. Thoracic surgeons in practice as well as those in training will find this book to be an excellent resource thanks to the extensive number of detailed images and succinct technical descriptions it contains.
This article provides an extensive discussion of general thoracic surgical techniques, some of which are rarely carried out in general practice. The first edition of this book was published in 1990, and this new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated…. This is an excellent resource for working surgeons to use as a reference, or for students and trainees who are interested in the subject of thoracic surgery to use as an instructional resource. The authors have recruited surgery professors who are committed to the study as well as the clinical application of thoracic surgery. — Michael Bates, from Doody's Book Reviews, from the month of February 2019
