Congenital heart disease (CHD) is generally thought to be a difficult and challenging subject. In this textbook authors have made an effort to make CHD comprehensive with a strong clinical bias so that physicians caring for the newborn, infant and the children can have an early diagnosis with accuracy so as to prevent high morbidity and mortality. Recent advances in percutaneous interventions and surgical techniques have made the outlook for CHD look brighter today. In this book all importance has been given to basic anatomy, embryology, pathophysiology and clinical features besides basic investigations starting from ECG, chest X-ray, echocardiography to invasive procedures like cardiac catheterization and angiocardiography keeping a link between pre-echo era and present day investigatory tools. For each disease a guideline is provided for management so as to initiate treatment with existing facilities and to make a decision for referral to appropriate cardiac center at the right time. This book is particularly meant for postgraduate students in medicine, paediatric and cardiology. Prominent cardiologists across the country have contributed many chapters from their vast experience and knowledge. Illustrations with simple hand drawn sketches are given wherever necessary depicting the abnormal anatomy and pathophysiological consequences for clear understanding. Simple teaching language and clear description of the basic clinical findings are the beauty of this book.
