A multi-authored monograph with more the character of a symposium collection than a text with clear sequence and seamless continuity. The short chapters are grouped under topical headings of counterpulsation, left ventricular assist devices, total artificial hearts, heart transplantation, biomaterials, and artificial valves. Appendixes include a bibliography of papers published in 1975, 1976, 1977, and 1978 and a table listing locations where assisted circulation is being used. Sketchy subject index. The collection does offer a state-of-the-art broad view but it cannot be recommended as a systematic treatise.
