The experts who have contributed articles in this book and the IAP office bearers 2006 and 2007 for helping with concept and editorial work of the entire IAP Speciality Series. This book attempts to bridge this gap and aims to provide basic information required for a practising pediatrician and a postgraduate student in pediatrics. The entire text throws light on clinical approach and seeks to examine relatively common problems encountered by practising pediatricians. The text begins with the diagnostic tools required to identify heart disease and the chapters include clinical examination, x-ray, ECG, echocardiography and diagnostic catheterization. Common clinical problems such as chest pain, syncope and arrhythmias are dealt with in the next set of chapters. Congenital heart diseases are described under conventional categories. Acquired conditions such as rheumatic fever, Kawasaki disease, myocardial and pericardial diseases and endocarditis are all described in separate chapters. The final set of chapters includes a variety of special issues relating to pediatric heart care. A chapter on Follow-up of children following Cardiac Surgery and Percutaneous Interventions is specifically included. This book useful and informative and hope that this book becomes a desk companion for all the practicing pediatricians and postgraduates in pediatrics.
