This practical resource provides essential guidance on the anatomic issues, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and clinical management of adults with congenital heart disease. Each consistently structured, disease-oriented chapter discusses incidence, genetics, morphology, presentation, investigation and imaging, treatment, and intervention. A wealth of illustrations—including line drawings, EKGs, X-rays, and echocardiograms—clearly depict the clinical manifestations of congenital defects.
  • Includes information on all treatment and management options—both surgical and nonsurgical.
  • Covers the full range of common and uncommon congenital problems.
  • Features a chapter on morphology from the Royal Brompton Hospital as well as a chapter on clinical assessment written by renowned expert Joseph Perloff, MD.
  • Discusses hot topics such as Eisenmenger's Syndrome and diseases of the tricuspid valve.
  • Uses a wealth of illustrations to aid in the diagnosis and recognition of a full range of disorders.
  • Covers long-term outcomes, including the management of the pregnant patient and the patient undergoing non-cardiac surgery.
  • Summarizes the benefits and risks of surgical procedures, catheter interventions, and drug therapy.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Srinivasa P Potluri, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book on congenital heart disease is divided into 11 sections and each section into chapters. The first section comprehensively describes the general principles that define adult congenital heart diseases with good anatomical illustrations. Section 2 is dedicated to the septal defects. Sections 3 to 7 focus on the acyanotic malformations and section 8 on cyanotic congenital heart disease. Section 9 describes the topic of univentricular heart and properly describes atrioventricular valve atresias. Section 10 is devoted to the coronary anomalies, a topic that is generally underrepresented. Section 11 is titled "Other Lesions" and includes informative accounts of acquired diseases, marfan syndrome and pulmonary hypertension.
Purpose: This is a concise multisource text that is a welcome addition to the still emerging field and will appeal to cardiologists as a comprehensive reference on the adult congenital heart diseases. The goals of the authors shaped the layout of the book, which is characterized by a systematic approach, easy access to information, and emphasis on patient management.
Audience: This book targets adult and pediatric cardiologists (in-training as well as practitioners) whose interest is in congenital heart diseases from infancy through adulthood. Michael Gatzoulis and Gary Webb, as directors of the internationally acclaimed adult congenital heart disease centers, are remarkably well equipped to edit this multisource textbook.
Features: The late sequelae of congenital heart disease are extensively covered in this book. Each consistently structured, disease-oriented chapter discusses incidence, genetics, morphology, presentation, investigation and imaging, treatment, and intervention. A wealth of illustrations — including line drawings, EKGs, X-rays, and echocardiograms — clearly depict the clinical manifestations of congenital defects. The illustrations and figures cover more of the management aspect of the disease than the anatomy and physiology, which makes this book appealing, mainly to a subspecialist.
Assessment: There have been many recent advances in the field of adult congenital heart diseases and this book is a timely work with eminent contributors. The book compliments rather than duplicates previous books on the same subject which are mainly single source texts.
