Congenital Heart Disease: Textbook of Angiocardiography Hardcover – Import, 18 Aug 1997
"These volumes will remain the benchmark for angiocardiography. The lucid text is supplemented by about 2,700 illustrations, which are extremely well reproduced.
"These volumes are essential in pediatric cardiology libraries...internists cardiologists who manage adults with congenital heart disease should also have this text in their libraries."
"...an open–minded approach to diagnosis of certain lesions, including valuable information that can be obtained from complementary imaging modalities (echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging)."
Doody s Review Service
"...likely to represent the apogee of an era."
The New England Journal of Medicine
"This two–volume book is extremely well written and covers this difficult subject extensively.
"...contains an excellent index, table of contents, and glossary of abbreviations used in classification and anatomy of congenital heart disease. Difficult areas such as atrial and visceral situs, d–l loop ventricle, isomerism, and heterotaxia are explained and illustrated well. ...over 2,700 figures.
"...one of the most comprehensive and current books available on angiocardiography of congenital heart disease."
"The herculean task of assimilating an encyclopedic compendium of angiograms in congenital heart disease has been successfully undertaken by this group of dedicated and experienced authors.
"The quality of the images is outstanding. Useful illustrations appear throughout the book, as do numerous drawings that provide a touch of humor (you ll have to review the book to see what I mean). The high–quality pathology illustrations are extremely valuable. The correlation of these illustrations with angiographic images provides unique insight into what the angiographer can expect to find. I also enjoyed the way these authors have put the images in clinical context.
"One of the real highlights is the attention paid to the postoperative imaging appearances of the heart after a myriad of new cardiac surgical procedures. The authors have also done a laudable job dealing with some of the angiographic appearances of postoperative complications. These areas are generally omitted in other standard angiography books.
"No other standard textbooks that are currently available deal with angiocardiography in such great detail; in my mind, few other books can compete.
"As a former pediatric cardiologist I only wish that this book had been available when I was in training and in practice."
––American Journal of Roentgenology
"The great effort put forth by this team of experienced authors is obvious from the quality and scope of this work. ...Without hesitation I recommend that all libraries consider this excellent book as an important reference source on pediatric cardiac angiography and put a copy on their shelves."
––Canadian Journal of Surgery
"This book should be at disposal in all departments where angiocardiography in patients with congenital heart diseases is performed."
––Czech and Slovak Paediatrics
"This superb effort to produce a reference atlas for congenital angiography is beautifully and carefully crafted by highly respected experts in congenital heart disease and cardiovascular radiology.
"This text should be a required reference source for all pediatric cardiology training program libraries. Its comprehensive atlas–like angiographic figures make it a masterpiece that should be available to all practicing pediatric cardiologists."
––Mayo Clinic Proceedings
"Interventional techniques are fully described, as is their role in treatment. For its most recent developments, this text is excellent.
"...a must for anyone performing angiocardiography or anyone involved in the diagnosis of congenital heart disease. It should certainly be a staple of hospital, medical school and departmental libraries in pediatrics and radiology."
"Authors succeeded in connecting angiographic findings (that are dominating) with clinical data. The book should be available at all departments performing angiographic examinations in patients with the congenital heart disease."
"This well–referenced book should appeal to all pediatric cardiologists, whether in training or fully trained. It is an essential book for all departmental libraries, institutional libraries, and highly and unreservedly recommended to individual doctors. Given its cost, it is a good value."
––CardioVascular and Interventional Radiology
"...comprehensive...will provide the reader with many hours of reading pleasure. It is also an excellent reference book for both invasive and non–invasive paediatric cardiologists, as well as radiologists involved in cardiovascular assessments. ...a unique and authoritative source of information. The beautiful angiographic images are a work of art. ...cardiac catheterisation and angiography will remain a very important diagnostic and therapeutic modality.
"...worth the investment. The library of any paediatric cardiologist would be incomplete without this reference book."
"... a heavy emphasis on morphologic descriptions of each anomaly and its many anatomic variations. The natural history of each condition is clearly depicted and all are portrayed extensively by a beautiful compilation of angiocardiography. The great usefulness of the interventional catheter which has developed so much over the past ten years, and its symbiosis with angiocardiography is well described. [The authors] have produced a text on angiocardiographic imaging destined to become a classic."
––from the Foreword by Dr. G.A. Trusler
From the Back Cover
With nearly 2,700 angiocardiographic images, including over 300 superb diagrams, this text provides angiocardiographic and clinical references to almost every form of congenitally malformed hearts, both common and rare. This wealth of clinical data is logically organized, meticulously indexed, and considerably enriched by an equally comprehensive text that goes well beyond the science of angiocardiography to consider such practical issues as management and outcome.
Destined to become a classic, Congenital Heart Disease: Textbook of Angiocardiography is sure to be of considerable value to every teaching and/or practicing pediatric and adult cardiologist, as well as cardiovascular surgeons, cardiac radiologists and cardiovascular pathologists worldwide.
