This book is based on experience gained by the author during his postgraduate work at the Westminster Hospital in London.
The monograph begins with a brief review of the embryologic development of the heart. Most frequent congenital malformations of the heart and the great blood vessels are enumerated and illustrated with diagrams and cardioangiograms. Symptomatology, operative procedures and immediate and remote postoperative results are described in the following chapters. A short bibliography closes each chapter.
Only general outlines of operations on the heart and the great blood vessels are given by the author. No technical details are given, and no instruments are described. Therefore the book would be of no value to a specialist. Apparently the purpose of this essay is to acquaint those not familiar with the subject with recent advances of surgery of malformations of the heart and the great blood vessels. This task has been accomplished in
