Contents Part I: Morphological assessment of congenital heart disease. Real-time three-dimensional (3D) echocardiography for diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart diseases in practical medicine: transepicardial and transesophageal approach -- Assessment of atrioventricular valve anatomy and function in congenital heart diseases using three-dimensional echocardiography -- Assessment of intracardiac anatomy by magnetic resonance imaging -- Assessment of extracardiac and intracardiac anatomy by MD-CT -- Part II: Functional assessment of congenital heart disease. Assessment of ventricular function using the pressure-volume relationship -- Assessment of vascular function by using cardiac catheterization -- Assessment of ventricular-vascular function by echocardiography -- Assessment of hemodynamics by magnetic resonance imaging.
Summary "This book comprehensively covers the latest information about ventricular vascular morphology and function in congenital heart disease (CHD) assessed by various innovative methodologies. Anatomical (morphological) abnormalities in CHD are generally accompanied with abnormal loading conditions, which, in turn, cause ventricular and vascular functional impairments. The functional impairments may also exist independently of the anatomical abnormalities. These two (morphological and functional abnormalities) importantly interact to determine underlying pathophysiology and generate clinical symptoms in CHD. Therefore, detailed and precise assessment of morphology and function is essential to better understand and treat this disease. Recent advances in technology have provided useful tools for this purpose, and novel findings are accumulating. The information contained here will provide researchers and clinicians with invaluable knowledge in this field"--Publisher's description.
