A Compact History of Cardiac Surgery Our Heritage A Compact History of Cardiac Surgery This is a ready reference book on the history of cardiac surgery. The authors realised that the superspecialty students/trainees are not inclined to read history in detail as they have voluminous subject textbooks to study and are hard pressed for time. Most books on history of cardiac surgery currently in circulation contain detailed description of events, surgeons and their biographies. Students/trainees preparing for the certification examination require a quick reference book that provides answers to most questions on history asked in their examinations. This succinctly written book will serve as a ready reckoner for the MCh practical examination and also refresh teachers for their didactic lectures, presentations, etc. The format is simple with a photograph and a brief onepage description of contributions, locations, etc. This perhaps is the only way to evince interest in the students and trainees to learn history of cardiac surgery. The book presents a portrait photograph, a brief biographic sketch and most relevant citation(s) of each of the over 100 physicians and surgeons included in the compilation.
