The sixth edition of Moss and Adams' Heart Disease in Infants, Children, and Adolescents: Including the Fetus and Young Adult takes its place as one of the two "full-service" texts that have become the standard reference books in pediatric cardiology. Volume 1 is almost entirely devoted to basic concepts related to cardiac development and anatomy, pathology, diagnostic and therapeutic methods, and fetal cardiology. Volume 2 deals with specific congenital and acquired heart defects. All the chapters are written by qualified experts with broad experience in the areas in which they contribute.
