Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Cory Adam Waldman, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This update of a 2003 book reviews the diagnosis and treatment options for adults with congenital heart disease. The authors and contributors are pioneers with extensive experience in the field of adult congenital heart disease.
Purpose: It is intended as an informative guide to the diagnosis and treatment options for the growing population of patients with adult congenital heart disease.
Audience: The book is written for students, physicians in training, and practitioners, including adult and pediatric cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons.
Features: It addresses the full spectrum of common and uncommon congenital heart diseases. The graphics, color art, and illustrations are of excellent quality and very helpful in the often difficult to describe complex anatomy and surgical corrections of congenital heart disease.
Assessment: This is a high-caliber book that offers relevant clinical information for healthcare providers. As the pediatric population of patients with congenital heart disease now surviving into adulthood continues to grow, cardiovascular practitioners will increasingly encounter unique problems. Helpful resources such as this will provide them with a current knowledge base to address these issues with their patients.
