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.
- Conveys a multidisciplinary, multi-system approach to the lifelong care of adult CHD patients to put treatment in a broader context.
- Presents information in a consistent, logical style so the information you need is easy to find and apply.
- Supplements the text with 600 clear conceptual illustrations to clarify difficult concepts.
