The author, a pioneer in this area, has written an outstanding reference which covers all aspects of performing diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterization procedures on patients of all ages.
The rapidly growing population of adults surviving with congenital heart lesions along with the success of interventional cardiology in the child and adolescent has spawned an incredible interest in adapting the technology for the adult congenital patients.
This illustrated book details the equipment and techniques for performing safe and successful procedures, with a strong emphasis on avoiding complications. It also includes the requirements of a catheterization laboratory for congenital heart patients, as well as guidance for setting up and operating such a laboratory.
