This practical resource for the clinical management of congenital heart disease offers essential instruction on the presentation and treatment of congenital heart defects throughout the life stages.

Edited by renowned pediatric cardiologist Douglas S. Moodie, MD, MS, from Texas Children’s Hospital, and authored by seasoned practitioners with vast clinical experience, this book expertly addresses the continuum of clinical care issues at distinct stages of growth and development:

  • Fetuses, neonates, and infants
  • Children
  • Adolescents and adults

Organized by specific congenital heart condition, each well-referenced and highly organized chapter examines the clinical features, diagnostic testing, management, and outcomes associated with age groups and includes tips and tricks gleaned from years of practice in the field of pediatric cardiology.

This exceptionally readable text will serve as both a great learning tool and a handy reference for practitioners, students, and nurses who need to stay up-to-date on the unique clinical challenges that CHD presents in the neonate to the adult.

Audience: Suited for the general pediatrician, cardiology fellow, pediatrics resident and medical student. Practicing cardiologists (pediatric and internist) and cardiology nurse practitioners will also find it a good and quick reference source that is very readable.

I am honored and humbled to have been asked to provide a foreword for Dr. Moodie’s new textbook on the spectrum of congenital heart disease. Doug is a good friend, but more, he is a highly respected senior member of our pediatric cardiology community. His wealth of experience is reflected nicely within the pages of this book. Why have another textbook that covers pediatric cardiology when there are at least two other major texts in the discipline, Dr. Anderson’s and Moss and Adams? The answer is that this clinically oriented text is easily understood and well written. It serves as a perfect non-competitive complement to the other texts. Dr. Moodie has chosen excellent and well-regarded authors, who have provided well illustrated and understandable chapters. The text is suited for the general pediatrician, cardiology fellow, pediatrics resident and medical student. Practicing cardiologists (pediatric and internist) and cardiology nurse practitioners will also find it a good and quick reference source that is very readable.

Most major pediatric textbooks today focus on the latest advances in technology, but devote less space to clinical care than did pediatric cardiology textbooks of the past. Our book instead offers a total clinical focus, providing information as it relates to diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up for a variety of conditions. What also makes this manual unique is that it is presented in “serial fashion”: It traces the clinical aspects of care, from the fetus to the adult, while focusing on the continuum of clinical care issues that arise at various stages of growth and development. No other book currently on the market takes that approach. Moreover, this textbook is written by veteran authors who are able to see the entire spectrum of congenital cardiac disease—from the fetus to the adult. These seasoned authors provide a panoramic view of congenital heart disease in numerous settings (eg, clinical features and presentation, diagnostic testing, and medical and surgical management). They also offer “Tips and Tricks” at the end of each chapter, and these
key clinical insights, gleaned from their vast experience, are meant to help their fellow clinicians provide better care to a variety of patients.

Congenital heart disease does not present the same way at different stages of life. I strongly believe that such a book is desperately needed, to look at the various aspects of how congenital heart disease presents and is treated at different ages: namely, in neonates and infants (aged 0–1 year), children (aged 1–12 years), adolescents (aged 13–18 years), and adults (aged >18 years). There is a great unmet demand for a book that closely examines congenital heart disease care and the technology that is utilized for it, but in a clinical care setting. Most of us tend to spend the majority of our time in clinical care—we need a textbook that does the same.

Doody's Five Star Review

Selim Krim,  MD(Ochsner Clinic Foundation)

This practical book on the clinical management of congenital heart disease throughout the life span is authored by a very well-known and respected expert in the field of pediatric cardiology and congenital heart disease.

The purpose is to present a guide to congenital heart disease in the clinical setting.

It will be very useful for physicians in training, pediatric and adult cardiology fellows, practicing cardiologists, and other physicians who have an interest in congenital heart disease.

The book is organized into 21 concise chapters covering all aspects of the management of congenital heart disease, from anatomy to clinical diagnosis, imaging, treatment, and outcome, with a take-home message at the end. The first six chapters cover atrial and ventricular septal defects, while the next four discuss cyanotic heart diseases. Chapters 11 to 17 focus on congenital valvular heart disease. Finally, the last chapter is dedicated to congenital coronary anomalies.

This is a very practical and comprehensive book on diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease.
