Completely updated and expanded, this new edition describes step-by-step the surgical procedures for congenital heart defects and includes detailed illustrations for each operation.

This resource on operative procedures for congenital cardiac defects has been extensively revised. Approximately 50 contributors describe their techniques in complete detail, including small but often important technical aspects usually not covered in other surgical references.

Descriptions of surgical techniques appearing throughout the book are accompanied by illustrations. Pertinent information on diagnosis, indications for operations, complications and results appear in each chapter.

New in this edition are chapters on exercise testing, MRI, EP studies and catheter ablation of arrhythmias, extracorporeal circulatory support and paediatric lung transplantation. A greatly expanded ultrasound chapter contains numerous colour Dopplers of many conditions.
