Drs. Little and Merrill draw on their expertise in general thoracic and cardiac surgery to review tracheobronchial operations, lung volume reduction operations, lung transplantation, minimally invasive esophagectomy, pleural operations, revascularizations, myocardial operations, and aortic and great vessel operations. For each operation, leading practitioners provide specific advice on what to be aware of to prevent complications -- and how to manage them if they do occur.
