About the book

This book will focus on the current perspectives on the coronary artery bypass grafting. Surgical revascularization is usually indicated in left main disease and multivessel coronary artery disease. However, there is a debate about the role of coronary artery bypass grafting in acute coronary syndrome or ischemic cardiomyopathy.
There has been a long debate regarding the superiority of off-pump versus on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting. In addition, there is a debate on ways of treating concomitant carotid and coronary artery disease. In the meantime, robotic coronary artery bypass grafting has emerged as a minimally invasive surgery. This technique provides the new approach to coronary artery disease. A hybrid approach, which is a combination of minimally invasive surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention, could be an alternative treatment option in selected patients. During postoperative recovery, early mobilization of the patients cannot be too stressed. Cardiac rehabilitation and physical therapy would play a big role.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
