Overview

Congenital Heart Defects, or CHDs, are the most frequently occurring birth defect. In the US alone, over 25,000 babies are born each year with some form of CHD. In the last 20 years, medical advances and new surgical procedures have dramatically decreased the mortality rate of these abnormalities and led to a better understanding and treatment of CHDs in adults. This definitive work on the subject covers all aspects of CHD, under the editorship of a leading geneticist, cardiologist, and public health physician, and features contributions from 60 major authorities in the field. Coverage includes a broad range of topics on the development, epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, management, prevention, and public health issues of CHDs. This book will be of interest to geneticists, epidemiologists, cardiologists, pediatricians, graduate students, researchers, and others interested in the treatment of individuals with CHDs.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael G White, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: The editors state that this new book on congenital heart disease "is intended to present detailed descriptions of the many aspects related to CHD." There is clearly an effort to meet this monumental goal with some areas of modest success.
Purpose: The admirable goal is to cover all aspects of congenital heart disease in a fashion that will be useful to all those interested in the subject from "casual readers" to "clinicians" or "researchers," but the book fails to meet the needs of more experienced readers and is much too sophisticated for casual readers. In attempting to reach out to all, the book fails to meet the needs of any audience effectively.
Audience: The preface states that the book is directed at virtually anyone interested in any aspect of congenital heart disease.
Features: This book attempts to cover congenital heart disease in an encyclopedic fashion, but it falls short due to the contradictory goals of providing information to inexperienced readers, i.e. patients and family members of those with CHD, as well to as clinicians and those in research.
Assessment: There are more complete books, many of them cited as references for chapters in this book. In addition, this book is poorly edited with far too many errors in grammar and the chapters are poorly organized. The quality of the illustrations is substandard as well, with color Doppler images reproduced in black and white. This is a worthy effort that falls short of the stated goals in quality, clarity, and content.
