|This book will provide both an evidence base and practical recommendations for the treatment of patients with congenital heart disease. It will be a resource to all health care providers who care for patients with congenital heart disease, including pediatric cardiologists, pediatric intensivists, pediatric heart surgeons, fetal specialists, maternal fetal medicine specialists, neonatologists, nurses, advanced practice nurses, in addition to trainees in the field (students, residents and fellows).
This book will summarize the world knowledge on the topic of heart failure in patients with congenital heart disease. It will provide a state-of-the-art, in depth analysis of the current methods of diagnosis and treatment of heart failure in patients with congenital heart disease. Now that surgical results of the treatment of congenital heart disease are at record success rates, more patients with congenital heart disease are surviving, and thus at risk for sequelae from their disease, including heart failure. This topic will be divided into sections written by leaders in the field for each of the sections. Each aspect of heart failure in the patient with congenital heart disease will be presented, broken down by age and disease states.
In this rapidly growing population, this book will provide both evidence based and practical recommendations to the practitioner for the management of heart failure signs and symptoms.

|Exhaustive in its scope, this book provides a comprehensive study of the natural and modified history of congenital heart disease. Focusing particularly on the discussion of fetal and post-natal outcomes, the contributors seek to place developments in historical perspective. Virtually all surgical and catheter-based strategies to enhance outcomes of all forms of congenitally malformed heart are analysed, covering the morphology and genetic basis of each particular abnormality, and issues that were germane to evolving different therapeutic strategies. Using data from the records of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, contributors highlight the complications of the various forms of therapies and identifies particular risk factors for mortality and morbidity.|
