This new volume of the collection presents the anatomical region of the thorax.
It gives a detailed and clear description of thoracic surgical procedures, ranging
from the most common ones, such as thoracotomy or the placement of a thoracic
drainage; to the most complex
ones such as the placement of a transvalvular patch in cases of pulmonary valve stenosis, or oesophagogastroplasty in megaesophagus cases.
The high quality of its images, some of them accompanied by diagrams and illustrations, allow an accurate description of the pathologies and their aetiology.
