The Pathology of Congenital Heart Disease: A Personal Experience With More Than 6,300 Congenitally Malformed Hearts, 2 Volume Set

Saroja Bharati, Maurice Lev

ISBN: 978-0-879-93556-6 June 1996 Wiley-Blackwell 1567 Pages


Drs. Bharati and Lev share the knowledge they've accumulated through the study of the pathology of congenital heart disease as seen in this century. Their detailed studies of over 6,300 congenitally malformed hearts give them a unique and comprehensive perspective on this topic. This monograph reports the results of their analyses and includes 2,700 excellent photographs. This book will be of significant interest to those working with or studying about congenital heart disease. This book will help clinicians and surgeons to diagnose congenital heart disease. Likewise, it offers protocol for correcting the lesions, nonsurgically and surgically. Concurrently, the text offers fertile ground for selective basic science specialities: genetics, immunology and molecular biology. Epidemiologists, statisticians and computer experts will want to review this book.

Index to Volumes 1 and 2.

"This is a good, short compilation of data on relatively rare forms of ventricular tachycardia, that is, those found in the structurally normal heart. This book provides a ready reference on these patients as well as an extensive reference list for further review in a specific area as needed." (Cardiology News)

" excellent book which serves as a superb summary of an exploding field of knowledge. I would highly recommend this text for cardiology house officers, general cardiologists, and internists interested in arrhythmias." (PACE)
