Echocardiography in Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease From Fetus to Adult 2nd Edition PDF
50.19 MB PDF
For the first edition of this textbook, we had set out to fill a void for an updated comprehensive resource on all aspects related to echocardiography in patients with congenital heart disease, from the fetus to the adult.We felt it was important to include detailed information about the anatomy and pathophysiology of each lesion and to describe the goals and techniques of the echocardiographic examinations for diagnosis, guidance of treatment, and monitoring after intervention. In addition to diagrams and still images, hundreds of videos were provided to illustrate key anatomic and functional issues mentioned in the text. We were pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response that the first edition of this book received.
In this second edition, we made improvements in multiple areas. The discussion of fundamental concepts of echocardiography and the sections on imaging techniques were updated to include advances inknowledge and improvements inultrasound technology. Our coverage of congenital lesions was expanded to include separate chapters on the post-Fontan patient and on pregnancy and heart disease. Each of the lesion chapters now has a section highlighting the Key elements of the echocardiogram(s). Finally, all of the figures and videos were reviewed with the goal of upgrading and standardizing image quality and display technique.
The field of echocardiography remains dynamic and constantly evolving. Nevertheless, the mainstay for education in clinical echocardiography continues to be the written text illustrated with images. As we try to expand the resources available to trainees, practitioners, and educators, we are constrained by the publishing format currently available for textbooks. Therefore, our second edition remains mostly accessible in print or PDF format. The videos havemoved frombeing primarily available on DVD to a companion website. Future efforts will no doubt benefit from greater electronic access to the text and images.
As with the first edition, this book is the product of many excellent contributions fromthe best physician and sonographer experts in the field. We are indebted to their dedication to the field and their commitment to education.We remain grateful to our mentors and colleagues, and we continue to be inspired by our trainees. The staff at Wiley-Blackwell have been truly supportive, and the professional appearance of this book is due to their many contributions. Finally, this and all projects in which the editors are involved remain possible only with the unwavering support of our families and friends.
