Congenital Heart Defects, or CHDs, are the most frequently occurring birth defect. In the US alone, over 25,000 babies are born each year with some form of CHD. In the last 20 years, medical advances and new surgical procedures have dramatically decreased the mortality rate of these abnormalities and led to a better understanding and treatment of CHDs in adults. This definitive work on the subject covers all aspects of CHD, under the editorship of a leading geneticist, cardiologist, and public health physician, and features contributions from 60 major authorities in the field. Coverage includes a broad range of topics on the development, epidemiology, genetics, diagnosis, management, prevention, and public health issues of CHDs. This book will be of interest to geneticists, epidemiologists, cardiologists, pediatricians, graduate students, researchers, and others interested in the treatment of individuals with CHDs.
