This textbook, edited by three of the world's leading experts, profiles all aspects of this important field. Beginning with embryology and concluding with congenital heart defects in the newborn, it explains scientific and clinical principles with clarity and is illustrated with top quality scans. Fetal Cardiology is for all health care professionals performing targeted organ scans or with an interest in the fetal heart. Aimed especially at obstetricians, pediatric cardiologists and general cardiologists, this book includes chapters on treatment options-pharmacological or surgical interventions-available to affected fetuses, as well as all life-stages of heart disease, from embryology to adulthood. It also explores often-ignored areas such as the placenta, reproductive health of women with coronary heat disease, counseling of families affected with coronary heart disease, and future fetal treatments only now being developed. Fetal Cardiology will establish itself as the benchmark text.
