Finally, a pacing book dedicated to the adult patient with CHD. Drawing on their vast experience, Drs. Mond and Karpawich join forces to show you what to do, how to do it, and what to avoid.
Building on more than 60 years of device therapy Pacing Options in the Adult Patient with Congenital Heart Disease leads you through the many congenital heart defects now seen in adults. This essential resource:
- Describes the various anatomical characteristics of repaired and non-repaired congenital heart defects and compares these with the normal anatomy, allowing you to easily identify the differences
- Guides you through the implant techniques, highlighting the specific problems that might be encountered and providing proven techniques to overcome technically difficult anatomical variations in patients with and without congenital heart disease
Throughout the book, schematic diagrams of the diverse anatomy of the congenital heart support the textual descriptions, and x-rays and fluoroscopic images illustrate the physiology and maximize understanding.
