In Thoracic Surgery: 50 Challenging Cases, editor Wickii T. Vigneswaran has selected 50 challenging cases presented by leading thoracic surgeons. Each case highlights a unique situation from which other surgeons can learn. The selection of Cases includes patients with diagnostic challenges, unconventional and innovative solutions, unexpected findings, and new techniques to treat old problems. The discussions after each case provide a useful starting point for further inquiry. Amply illustrated, this book reflects the wisdom and experience of world leaders in thoracic surgery and teaches junior surgeons how to approach the key thoracic surgical procedures, and how to manage in unexpected and difficult situations. This is a Masterclass in thoracic surgery.
