Because of the wide variety of anomalies encountered in congenital heart surgery, a broad understanding of the pathologic anatomy of defects is vitally important to the successful surgeon. More than in most other fields of surgery, a feel for three-dimensional spatial relations of anomalies is helpful in allowing the surgeon to improvise the technical details of an operation. Due to advances in congenital heart surgery, patients are living well into adulthood. The authors extensive 20-year collection of photographs shows the progress of patients over a long period of time while demonstrating surgical technique for every congenital cardiac anomaly, from the common to the rare.

Color Atlas of Congenital Heart Surgery covers the full spectrum of congenital heart defects, first depicting the pathology in pre-repair photographs and then detailing step-by-step the operative procedure. Dr. Litwin depicts the most common procedures along with the most complex ones, providing a range of information vital to residents and fellows in training as well as clinicians in practice.
One of the key aspects of the utility and practicality of Color Atlas of Congenital Heart Surgery is the unique perspective of the operative photos. Using a special side-mounted flash, the author’s photographs vividly capture the three dimensional spatial relations of congenital anomalies and surgical anatomy. Additionally, each illustration and photo is extensively labeled for clarity (indicating the patient’s left, right, cephalad and caudad positions).
With over 100 new illustrations and many new procedures, the new edition of Color Atlas of Congenital Heart Surgery is both a textbook and an atlas, providing an indispensable reference for every surgeon, cardiologist, intensivist, or anesthetist who treats patients with congenital cardiac anomalies.
From the reviews of the second edition:
"This is the second edition of Dr. S. Bert Litwin’s ‘Color Atlas of Congenital Heart Surgery.’ ... All students, residents and practicing cardiothoracic surgeons will benefit from reviewing these superb photographs of the anterior surface anatomy of the heart. ... This atlas should be a key reference in the library of all children’s hospitals, especially in those institutions where pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery fellows are in training. ... provide useful information to any student of congenital heart disease at any point in his/her career." (John J. Lamberti, Congential Cardiology Today, September, 2009)
