About this Book

A companion book to Adult Congenital Heart Disease that will concentrate on the practical management of children with heart conditions. This is aimed at general paediatricians and physicians who are responsible for ongoing management, rather than specialists concerned with acute or rare presentations. The book will be illustrated with relevant radiology scans, demonstrating which investigations are appropriate, and will provide the relevant information for the generalist on patient management for different lesions. A section on emergency management is also included. Authorship is international, with contributions from both sides of the Atlantic and from Japan.
