This book helps surgeons and other medical professionals understand the inflammatory mechanisms associated with cardiovascular surgery.
In recent years, The impact of the inflammatory response in cardiovascular surgery has been a focus of much attention within the field of cardiac surgery. Despite that, scientific research on the topic is still lacking in the health science literature. To develop the bank of information available to all involved in the field, the Editors of this book have assembled a group of leading experts to investigate the most current and exciting topics related to inflammation and cardiovascular surgery. As such Inflammatory Response in Cardiovascular Surgery is vital reading for all involved in the management of cardiovascular surgical patients, such as cardiovascular and transplant surgeons, anesthesiologists, intensive care physicians, cardiovascular and vascular fellows, and researchers.
