Diagnosis and Management of Adult Congenital Heart Disease Book Description :
This book provides the practical, one-stop guidance the reader needs to effectively manage the wide range of individual conditions, both common and rare, encountered among these patients. It explores each disease's incidence, genetics, morphology, presentation, investigation and imaging, treatment, and intervention; discusses hot topics such as Eisenmenger's Syndrome and diseases of the tricuspid valve; includes today's full range of treatment options - summarizing the benefits and risks of surgical procedures, catheter interventions, and drug therapies; and covers long-term outcomes, including the management of pregnant patients and patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery. This is an ideal reference for busy physicians faced with the many forms of congenital heart disease seen in adults.
