Book Description

Accounting for the huge strides in technological development over the past few years, as well as of recent research and advances, this text updates cutting-edge information on topics such as:

  • embryology
  • cardiovascular development
  • placental implantation and development
  • intracardiac shunt malformations
  • fetal cardiac tumors


  • downloadable resources with over 50 video clips, including 4D ultrasound
  • high quality illustrations in colour throughout
  • new information on the cardiac impact of twin-twin transfusion syndrome, cerebral outcomes in CHD, and congestive heart failure
