Jesse E. Edwards' Synopsis of Congenital Heart Disease

Front Cover
A comprehensive work written by driving forces in the field, defining the
essentials of congenital heart disease.

Over the last 50 years, tremendous strides have been made in the treatment
of congenital heart disease. Many patients with congenital heart disease
are now reaching adulthood and seeking medical care from cardiologists,
internists, and family practitioners who do not historically deal with
congenital heart disease. Written by two acclaimed authorities and
educators in the field, Jesse E. Edwards' Synopsis of Congenital Heart
Disease provides these physicians with a richly illustrated refresher
course, and a handy reference text, in the fundamentals of congenital heart

In this book, Dr. Jesse Edwards shares his vast experience in a discussion
of the fundamental anatomy and physiology associated with congenital heart
disease. The text provides succinct descriptions of the common and uncommon
abnormalities of congenital heart disease and the principles underlying
their treatment, while 200 figures clearly demonstrate and guide the user to
understand the essential nature of the characteristic defects and
abnormalities discussed.

This book will serve as a unique and useful reference to broaden the
knowledge of adult cardiologists, internists, radiologists, cardiovascular
nurses, nurse practitioners, cardiac catheterization personnel, and other
paramedical professionals who wish to understand more thoroughly the
fundamentals of congenital heart disease.
