Presented in an algorithmic approach, this book is a practical guide to thoracic surgery.

Beginning with discussion on preoperative physical examination, the following sections cover surgery for different regions of the thoracic system, based on step by step evaluation of patient history, physical examination, investigation and diagnosis, leading to a decision on the appropriate surgical procedure.

The text covers the chest wall, pleura, mediastinum, trachea, lung, and oesophagus, with a final section on lung donation and transplantation.

Authored by recognised, US-based experts from Loyola University Health System, Maywood, IL and Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, FL, the text is further enhanced by clinical photographs, diagrams and tables.
