Robot hearts

The horrors of nineteenth-century medicine will return to this blog tomorrow, but here’s a brief intermezzo:

The Guardian recently printed a long extract from The Matter of the Heart, my new book about the history of heart surgeryIt’s an abbreviated version of the book’s final chapter, which looks at some of the cutting-edge technology used by  today’s surgeons and asks what innovations lie in the future.

You can either read it online or listen to (or download) this audio version.

If this whets your appetite the book is now on sale – more information (including links to online booksellers), can be found here.
