Descript XX, 378 p. online resource


Since the previous edition of this book, new technologies and techniques have been introduced to the field of pediatric interventional cardiology and much has been learned about established transcatheter therapies., The volume of published data on outcomes of transcatheter procedures in congenital and pediatric heart disease has grown and the role of interventional catheterization has become solidified as an integral component of the comprehensive management of patients with essentially all forms of congenital heart disease. This book is targeted to trainees and established interventional cardiologists alike, and is intended as a comprehensive reference for the clinical practice of diagnostic and interventional cardiology in pediatric and congenital heart disease
