Pediatric intensivists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and anesthesiologists from the leading centers around the world present the collaborative perspectives, concepts, and state-of-the-art knowledge required to care for children with congenital and acquired heart disease in the ICU. Their multidisciplinary approach encompasses every aspect of the relevant basic scientific principles, medical and pharmacologic treatments, and surgical techniques and equipment. From the extracardiac Fontan procedure, and the Ross procedure through new pharmacologic agents and the treatment of pulmonary hypertension to mechanical assist devices, heart and lung transplantation, and interventional cardiac catheterization—all of the developments that are affecting this rapidly advancing field are covered in depth. Employs well-documented tables, text boxes, and algorithms to make clinical information easy to access. Features chapters each written and reviewed by intensivists, surgeons, and cardiologists. Integrates the authors' extensive experiences with state-of-the-art knowledge from the literature. Offers four completely new chapters: Cardiac Trauma, Congenital Heart Disease in the Adult, Congenitally Corrected Transposition of the Great Arteries, and Outcome Evaluation. Describes the basic pharmacology and clinical applications of all of the new pharmacologic agents. Details important refinements and developments in surgical techniques, including the Ross pulmonary autograft replacement of the aortic valve, video-assisted fluoroscopy, and the extracardiac Fontan connection, and discusses their indications and potential complications. Explores the latest advances in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension, new developments in mechanical assist devices, heart and lung transplantation, and interventional cardiac catheterization. Examines issues affecting adults with congenital heart disease.

Congenital heart disease with its worldwide incidence of 1% is the most common inborn defect. Increasingly, patients are living into adulthood, with ongoing congenital heart and other medical needs. Sadly, only a small minority have specialist follow-up. However, all patients see their family doctor and may also seek advice from other health professionals. This practical guide with its straightforward a,b,c approach is written for those professionals. Special features of this book: • Introduces the principles of congenital heart disease and tells you whom and when to refer for specialist care • Discusses common congenital heart lesions in a practical, easy-to-follow way, with an emphasis on diagnosis and management issues • Includes an extensive chapter on 'Pregnancy and Contraception' (by Philip J. Steer), essential both for family planning and for managing safely the pregnant woman with congenital heart disease • Includes chapters on non-cardiac surgery and lifestyle issues such as work, insurability, travel and driving • Provides invaluable information on dealing with common emergencies; what to do and what not to do With a wealth of illustrations (including diagrams, EKGs, CXRs, Echos and cardiac MRIs) and with key point tables, this is an essential guide for all health care professionals managing patients with adult congenital heart disease.

The last 10 years has seen explosive expansion of the number of centres performing cardiov- cular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging. The majority of this expansion has been in the ? eld of adult ischaemic imaging, but congenital heart disease remains one of the main indications for CMR. Importantly, the greatly improved survival of patients with congenital heart disease gives us a burgeoning adult population living with the sequelae of the disease (grown-up c- genital heart disease – GUCH). Without previous experience or formal training, the interpretation of CMR images of patients with congenital heart disease can be dif? cult. The main aim of this book is to create a portable resource that offers ef? cient access to high-quality MR (and where appropriate, CT) images of the common congenital and structural heart abnormalities. We hope that by prov- ing key images for each condition and a clear interpretation of the MR appearances, we will improve the reader’s understanding of the conditions, facilitate their interpretation of images and optimise the planning of the imaging protocols during their own practice of congenital CMR. As with any publication from a single institution, the contents of this book represent our own practice. We have not written a de? nitive or exhaustive description of the conditions.
