This unique text/atlas superbly documents echocardiographic appearances of congenital malformations of the heart, systematically links these abnormalities to their embryologic origins, and addresses key surgical issues. The book provides complete coverage of cardiac situs and cardiac malpositions in addition to anomalies of venous drainage, cardiac septation, the atrioventricular valves, ventricular looping, the ventricles, the ventricular outflows, the conus and truncus, the aortic arches, and the coronary arteries. Opening chapters chronicle the embryologic development of the heart, establish normal echocardiographic anatomy, and review the fundamentals of Doppler echocardiography and fetal echocardiography. The outstanding collection of illustrations--some 750 in all--features state-of-the-art echocardiographic visualizations as well as supporting pathology and embryology specimens.
