Project Description

Working with cardiac surgeons at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, I created illustrations that helped illuminate textual descriptions of the authors' approach to aortic valve replacement surgery and the Bentall procedure. The illustrations will appear in a book chapter to be published in 2013.
