The field of cardiac catheterization for congenital heart disease is n earing the end of a period of rapid expansion, change, and diversifica tion. Now is a good time to identify and assess many of these changes. This retrospective view serves more purposes than self-congratulation : it allows a clearer prediction of where the field is likely to go, a nd how it
The field of cardiac catheterization for congenital heart disease is n earing the end of a period of rapid expansion, change, and diversifica tion. Now is a good time to identify and assess many of these changes. This retrospective view serves more purposes than self-congratulation : it allows a clearer prediction of where the field is likely to go, a nd how it gets there. The first and most obvious change is the continu ed rapid growth of Catheter-directed interventional procedures.
