Dr. Perloff, the founding father of the field of adult congenital heart disease, presents a decade’s worth of research and clinical data in the completely redefined 3rd edition to bring you the most current information. With advances in diagnosis and treatment in children, more and more of those with CHD survive well into adulthood. Expert contributors in various fields offer a multi-disciplinary, multi-system approach to treatment so you get comprehensive coverage on all aspects of the subspecialty, including basic unoperated malformations, medical and surgical perspectives, postoperative residue, and sequelae. As someone who treats these patients, you need to be ready to provide the continual care they require.
"There has been a dramatic increase in the survival of children with congenital cardiac anomalies since the previous edition was published, necessitating an extensive update in order to keep readers abreast of the current status of this evolving field… This timely update serves as a useful reference for those caring for adult patients with congenital cardiac anomalies." - Doody’s 4 Stars **** - May 2009
