This text is divided into seven sections covering the applications, uses, effects and designs of stentless bioprostheses. The three opening chapters describe the paediatric applications of stentless bioprostheses, with reference to aortic valve replacement and right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction Chapters in the second section discuss the use of stentless bioprostheses in the mitral position. The following two sections discuss different aspects of the clinical outcomes of stentless bioprostheses and the fifth section has seven chapters on haemodynamics and left ventricular function. The final sections cover the topics of implantation techniques and the design and construction of stentless bioprostheses. The second edition is updated and enhanced and is Illustrated in full colour.
