The Matter of the Heart
A history of cardiac surgery. Using eleven different types of procedure he beautifully illustrates the development of techniques, the personalities involved and the impact on both medicine and the lives of individual patients. Covers the earliest attempts at diagnosis and treatment, to transplants and TAVIs via angioplasty, valve surgery and congenital conditions.
This was brilliant. A great blend of science & technology, medicine and history. And finally I understand what a diagnosis of tetralogy of Fallot means.
