Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph Sam Owen, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: Written by acknowledged experts, this book offers a comprehensive approach to adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) using a case-study approach.
Purpose: The authors provide an in-depth reference for the diagnosis and management of adult congenital heart disease using specific cases as teaching examples.
Audience: It is intended for any health science student, midlevel provider, physician in training, or practicing cardiologist who is interested in gaining clinical knowledge in this evolving field.
Features: The book is organized as a series of case studies in five sections. A unique feature is the integration of chest x-ray and echocardiograms with more advanced imaging like MRI or CT. Relevant and thought-provoking questions are offered at the end of each case with clear and detailed answers that provide an informative review. Each case concludes with an intervention, including a brief description and rationale for the intervention. The book is complemented by a web site that offers convenient accessibility to a large collection of cine imaging.
Assessment: More patients with ACHD are making the transition from their pediatric cardiologist to an adult cardiologist. This book will help prepare adult cardiologists to effectively manage this special and unique population.
