Over 10 years after the publication of the second edition, Wiley now publishes the third edition of the popular volume Surgery for Congenital Heart Defects.

Completely updated and expanded, this new edition describes step-by-step the surgical procedures for congenital heart defects and includes detailed illustrations for each operation.

New in this edition are chapters on exercise testing, MRI, EP studies and catheter ablation of arrhythmias, extracorporeal circulatory support and paediatric lung transplantation. A greatly expanded ultrasound chapter contains numerous colour Doppler’s of many conditions.

“A user-friendly and instructive resource that is sure to be of great value to many physicians. Even the greenest medical student wades comfortably into the depths of the text and feels empowered by the visual feast that awaits. Medical illustrator Michael Courtney provides an abundance of impeccably detailed drawings, the quality of which is central to the text and helps set it apart from others in the field. Excellent integration of the figures into the text, which, coupled with the appropriate weighting of outcome measures and analyses of results, makes the text feel manageable. The editors … expertly maintain a balance between the extremes of encyclopedic esoteric and minimalist manuals to produce a text that will prove a cherished resource on the desk of nearly every pediatric cardiac surgeon.” (Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, December 2008)

"…an excellent update of a classic book…it is complete, well written, edited by outstanding authorities in the field…" (Doody's Health Services)
