Diagnostic and Interventional Catheterization in Congenital Heart Disease / Edition 3

Hardcover (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Frank Cetta
This is a definitive text for diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization in patients with congenital heart disease. In this second edition the ever expanding role of intervention in the congenital cardiac catheterization laboratory is explored. The purpose is to review the history of catheter intervention for various congenital lesions and to point out valuable tips, suggestions, and pitfalls encountered by experienced congenital heart disease interventionalists. The book is intended for pediatric and adult cardiologists/trainees who work with congenital heart disease patients. It is a valuable reference and will serve as an essential training manual. In the early chapters the discussion is focused on the basics for diagnostic hemodynamic and angiographic assessment of patients with congenital heart disease. The majority of the text is dedicated to a comprehensive lesion-by-lesion description of interventional techniques. Reviews of early devices and techniques are presented as well as current state of the art techniques and devices that are approaching commercial use. Rational and objective comparisons of currently used techniques and devices are provided. This text, like its previous edition, will be an essential reference for all cardiologists who practice diagnostic and interventional catheterization in patients with congenital heart disease. In contrast to the previous edition, the emphasis here is on the substantial developments that have occurred in interventional congenital cardiology in the last decade.
