Format: Hardcover
The surgical correction of congenital heart disease, during the last 30 years has gone from infantile and largely experimental to a mature art. The change in mortality among children suffering from these conditions during this period of time is nothing short of awesome. Conditions that were universally fatal in the first year of life before 1970 are now routinely cured with followup data now entering well into adulthood. It is hard to imagine that it is now twenty years since the first successful surgical treatment of a child with hypoplastic leaft heart syndrome, and that this most dreaded anomaly is now successfully treated in over 80% of cases in some centers.
It is likewise hard to imagine any individual who had a greater impact on surgical repair of congenital heart disease than the senior author of this book. I say this with some bias, as I was fortunate enough to have him operate on my son who was born with transposition of the great vessels while I was a fellow in Pediatric Cardiology. He and his coauthors are universally recognized as leaders in the field, and their authorship of this book is nothing short of masterful.
This work is an essential reference for all who treat children with congenital heart disease. All current surtical techniques are discussed and well illustrated. Its publication in 1994 may miss some modern nuances, as endoscopic approaches to repair, but all of it is here. The text does not dwell on diagnostic techniques - for those, it would be better to look at Garson or Moss. This book is directed solely at the surgery, and that it does well. Illustrations are clear. Surgical considerations, including intraoperative and posoperative concerns are well discussed. The data describing surgical results is compehensive through its publication date.

Anyone doing a fellowship in pediatric cardiology cardiology will spend some time with this book, and it does not need my recommendation to know that it will find its way onto the bookshelf of most pediatric cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons.
HASH(0xb72458e8) out of 5 stars This is a great book, although getting a little out-dated Jan. 10 2015

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great book, although getting a little out-dated. Still, it has descriptions and pictures of all the major anomalies and repairs. Great for cardiac and non-cardiac surgeons.
