Leading heart surgeons (including the President of the Royal
College of Surgeons) bridge the ever-widening gap between
the "student" (both pre- and post-graduate) and an increas-
ingly remote group of medical and surgical specialists in
this , the only book devoted entirely to the established
principles of cardiac diagnosis.
Ross is one of the greats in cardiac surgery and internationally known; Sir Terence English trained under him and has been President of the RCOG since July 1989. The 2nd edition is substantially revised and enlarged, it makes for easy reading of basic principles for specialists and younger professionals alike.
