Overview

Fetal Echocardiography is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated guide to fetal heart scanning for anyone involved in obstetric ultrasound. Authored by a leading pediatric cardiologist with over 30 years of experience, it brings together all the information needed by cardiologists, obstetricians, sonographers or maternal-fetal medicine clinicians in order to obtain clear, high-quality echocardiograms and interpret them. Initial chapters provide the basic principles of echocardiography and how to obtain the standard views, giving numerous illustrations of each standard view and the possible deviations from normal. Subsequent chapters present a complete pictorial representation of almost all malformations recognised in fetal life. An overview of the likely outcome of each malformation is given, backed up by personal data involving nearly 4000 abnormal fetal hearts. Additional chapters cover Fetal Arrhythmias and Early Fetal Heart Scanning. Highly illustrated and full of practical guidance, Fetal Echocardiography is an invaluable resource for all practitioners involved in obstetric scanning.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Timir Paul, MD, PhD, MPH (East Tennessee State University Quillen College of Medicine)
Description: An organized approach to define cardiac anatomy has been adopted in this multiauthored reference on fetal echocardiography.
Purpose: The purpose is to describe and illustrate the steps in fetal scanning, such as how to obtain standard and different cardiac views, how to recognize the normal cardiac structures, how to distinguish and describe the abnormal, and how to reach a diagnosis. The other objective is to demonstrate the implications and outcomes of a particular diagnosis.
Audience: The intended audience includes neonatal and general pediatricians, pediatric cardiologists, neonatal/pediatric echocardiographers, and physicians in training specializing in neonatal or pediatric cardiology.
Features: The numerous illustrations, figures, and pictures are easy to understand and concepts are clearly detailed. The images of anatomy specimens are very helpful in correlating and understanding the corresponding echocardiography findings. The book illustrates examples of abnormalities and day-to-day cases as well as rare pathology. Indications and pitfalls of early fetal echocardiography, counseling, and outcome of individual cardiac malformation all help in understanding the basic concepts in relation to clinical decision making. Separate chapters detail standard views and how they manifest abnormalities, and the final chapter on outcome explores the implications of a defect.
Assessment: This excellent book helps novices increase their understanding and experienced practitioners enhance their knowledge. It will be a valuable resource for neonatal and general pediatricians, pediatric cardiologists, neonatal/pediatric echocardiographers, and physicians in training specializing in neonatal or pediatric cardiology.
