“In 1968, Dr. Carpentier established a new era in heart valve surgery when he introduced the concept of annular remodeling with prosthetic rings. He later broadened this concept in an effort to treat all types of valve lesions. In this volume, he has joined 2 American colleagues, Drs. David H. Adams and Farzan Filsoufi, in describing a broad compilation of valve disorders and techniques for their repair.”

“In addition, the book is enhanced by discussions between Dr. Carpentier and his coauthors at the end of each chapter. Presented in a conversational style, these discussions focus on the nuances of each technique, practical challenges encountered in the operating room, and alternative techniques devised by other surgeons.”
