The book Pediatric Cardiology is aimed to cover important aspects of clinical pediatric cardiology as seen in office practice and sufficient enough to equip the primary care physicians and postgraduates to approach various cardiac disorders systematically. More than 90% of physicians taking care of children with cardiac disorders are not cardiologists and hence must have the knowhow of interpreting and arriving at a clinical diagnosis and a fair knowledge of pharmacologic, interventional and surgical therapy. This book aims to provide basic information required for a practicing pediatrician and a postgraduate student in pediatrics. The entire text throws light on clinical approach and seeks to examine relatively common problems encountered by practicing 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.
