After a 15-year hiatus, the second edition of Paediatric
Cardiology has appeared. This multiauthored textbook originates from
Great Britain. Most chapters are written by experts from the United Kingdom
and some by physicians from other nations. Volume 1 includes the sections
"General Topics," "Development and Perinatal Medicine," and "Management and
Decision Making." The latter chapters of volume 1 and most of volume 2 deal
with specific lesions. The textbook concludes with chapters on "Risk Factors
and Follow-up" and "Psychosociologic Problems." Within the text, figures are
black and white. Color Doppler echocardiograms are presented on plates at
the beginning of each volume.
