Overview

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.
