Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit, Michigan) held an International Symposium devoted to cardiovascular surgery in March, 1955. This volume contains the proceedings of the meeting. The renowned participants—surgeons, physicians, radiologists, pathologists, and physiologists—came from several countries. Most of the papers were concerned with surgical technics, problems, and results. Some diagnostic methods were reviewed, and certain features of physiologic mechanisms which influence cardiovascular surgery were considered.
Internists interested in cardiology will appreciate the collection of such highly diversified material into one volume. The variety of surgical procedures available for various cardiovascular lesions should interest physicians who care for patients having these diseases.
