Percutaneous Interventions for Congenital Heart Disease is written for pediatric cardiologists specializing in interventional cardiology and need a step-by-step guide to carrying out procedures, as well as adult cardiologists. Covering all kinds of interventions in congenital heart disease and the new field of structural heart disease, the book examines:

  • Acquired valvular heart disease

  • Post-myocardial infarction ventricular septal defects

  • PFO closure

  • Closure of the left atrial appendage

  • Paravalvular leak closure

  • Techniques for treating diseases of the aorta

  • Hybrid procedures

An essential text on how to perform interventional cardiology for congenital heart disease in both the pediatric and adult patient, this expertly written work will help to overcome barriers between pediatric and adult cardiologists, and pave the way for new cardiovascular interventionalists.
