Interventions in Structural Valvular and Congenital Heart Disease 2nd Edition
At one time, many children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) suffered from issues that carried fatal prognoses. But that’s changing, thanks to technological advances. Interventions in Structural, Valvular, and Congenital Heart Disease, Second Edition guides you throught the interventional treatment of congenital, valvular, and structural heart disease in the children and adults. The book emphasizes the practical aspects of procedures and covers other important areas such as indications and patient selection, potential pitfalls, and complications.
See What’s New in the Second Edition:
- Contributions from new authors who are pioneers in structural interventions in adults and transcatheter aortic valve replacement
- Expanded emphasis on the importance of imaging alongside the technical details of equipment and its safe and effective delivery
- Coverage of emerging techniques at the forefront of interventional treatment such as fetal interventions, hybrid procedures, and mitral valve repair
Greater understanding, technical knowhow, and wider availability of catheters, balloons, delivery systems, and devices have spread intervention into the realm of acquired valve disease, degenerative disease of the aorta, paravalve leakage, postinfarction ventricular septal defects, and closure of the left atrial appendage. The book draws together expert interventionists from throughout the world to present approaches to congenital and structural heart disease that results in better outcomes for patients.
