This book is based on a series of 350 angiocardiograms that cover almost all the various types of congenital cardiac defects. The angiocardiographic reproductions are excellent. Adjacent to each angiogram is a detailed black and white diagram with complete text clearly indicating the author's interpretation. An entire chapter is devoted to each congenital cardiac defect, including a brief but concise discussion of the pathological physiology and clinical features. This is then followed by the illustrations and the text on the angiocardiographic interpretation. Another chapter is devoted to technique, equipment, opaque mediums, and principles of angiocardiographic interpretation. This should be read by all who contemplate doing this type of work. Although the volume is small, it is filled with valuable information for those interested in opaque visualization of the heart and great vessels.
