This monograph on angiocardiography is composed of two parts.

Part I consists of a review with concentration on the more important facts from the numerous articles published on this subject over the past 20 years. This has been accomplished quite well in the short space of 40 pages and is supported by a fairly complete bibliography. The review proceeds in an orderly fashion, covering methods, apparatus, hazards, and the value of angiocardiography.

In Part II the author presents 12 case reports on congenital heart disorders, with description of his methods, results, and conclusions. Adequate angiocardiograms are presented illustrating these cases.

The monograph would appear to be very useful to students and to physicians desiring a summarized knowledge of angiocardiography.
