Historian Daniel J. Boorstin has said, "Trying to plan for the future without a sense of the past is like trying to plant cut flowers." This reissue of Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery, endorsed by today's experts and with a new preface by Denton A. Cooley, M.D., Surgeon-in-Chief, Texas Heart Institute, is especially timely in this era of transition to interventional and hybrid procedures. No matter what the technical advances are, the same principles that facilitate successful outcomes in surgery (teamwork, communication, vigilance, simplicity and standardization of techniques, anticipation of the next step) will apply equally to today's hybrid procedures and to those who perform them. A best-seller in its field when first issued, Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery has since become a resource for the Cardiothoracic Surgery Network's safety reporting system (www.CTSNet.org) and has become the template used by CTSNet as a teaching tool for the anonymous reporting of near-disasters in the field by cardiac surgeons from around the world. Written in the second person present tense so that the reader becomes the surgeon on the spot, this reissue of Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery, although it reads like a medical thriller, is really a textbook of cardiac surgical complications, their management, and prevention. With its cogent analyses, discussions, and pertinent references, Near Misses in Cardiac Surgery will introduce a new generation of cardiac surgical residents and fellows, as well as more experienced surgeons, cardiologists, interventionalists, anesthesiologists, medical students, and nurses, to principles that are as timeless as they are essential.
