Fetal Cardiology for Obstetricians
Fetal cardiology is a nascent field that has evolved into a field with complex prenatal diagnoses. Advancements in medicine, surgery, and technology have made prenatal diagnosis part of the field of pediatric cardiology. Fetal cardiology is an important part of management for high-risk pregnancies: one in every 100 babies is born with a heart problem. Fully updated, this edition of Fetal Cardiology covers all aspects of fetal heart disease and relevant non-cardiac aspects of diagnosis and management. This book provides clinically relevant guidance in a concise, practical format which is ideal for use in the clinic and as a quick reference for the reader. Clearly structured to allow a systematic approach to diagnosis, decision making, and patient counseling, this book is perfect as a refresher for experienced clinicians in fetal and cardiological care, or as an informative view for the pediatrician, echo cardiographer, and trainees in associated disciplines. This book is a contribution of experienced fetal and pediatric cardiologists from different countries. This book grasps and keeps vital information, succinct text, and dynamic illustrations that facilitate learning in a highly visual approach.
