Review Quotes
Praise for the First Edition "This book is a display of superior individual knowledge - virtually encyclopaedic. The most difficult technical procedures are described with accuracy that reflect the skills and talents of a masterful surgeon. Any congenital cardiac surgeon, any surgical trainee interested in congenital cardiac surgery, will consult this book with great pleasure." - Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
This textbook covers the complete spectrum of the surgical management of congenital heart disease. It graphically illustrates the huge advances that have occurred in the care of patients with congenital heart disease.
Main Description
Since the first edition of this book was published in 2004, the management of congenital heart disease has continued to evolve at a rapid pace. Not only have new operations been developed and expanded, such as the intra/extracardiac conduit Fontan and the double root translocation for corrected transposition, but in addition, diagnostic methods particularly cardiac CT and MRI have been dramatically transformed. Understanding of the genetic basis of congenital heart disease and the embryology of cardiac development has progressed even more rapidly. What has not changed is that optimal outcomes for children and adults with congenital heart disease can only be achieved by a collaborative team effort. The team includes not only congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians. This second edition of Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Disease describes in detail the contemporary practice of Richard A. Jonas and the cardiac team at Children s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. The book once again includes numerous beautiful illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. In addition, the companion VitalSource ebook contains more than 50 operative videos that have been edited and narrated to highlight the key steps in complex surgical procedures. The book incorporates an evidence-based approach, supported throughout by numerous scientific citations, to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits, and potential complications.

Main Description
The management of congenital heart disease has changed dramatically over the last decade and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. More than ever before contemporary practice requires a collaborative effort by a large healthcare team comprised not only of congenital cardiac surgeons but also pediatric cardiac nurses, pediatric cardiologists, perfusion and respiratory technicians, pediatric cardiac intensivists, pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists, ultrasonographers, and MRI and catheter laboratory technicians. All of these individuals need to have a clear understanding of the morphology and pathophysiology of congenital heart disease as well as the surgical manipulations that take place in the operating room. This new edition of Comprehensive Surgical Management of Congenital Heart Diseasehas been fully updated to incorporate all the recent developments in the current practice of congenital heart surgery. The book includes numerous anatomical illustrations providing comprehensive and detailed information about intra-operative management of the entire spectrum of congenital heart surgery. As well as providing an operative atlas that illustrates how an operation should be performed, it also incorporates an evidence-based approach to explain when and why an operation should be done as well as the risks, benefits and potential complications.
