    DescriptionThe pioneers of early surgical intervention to correct congenital cardiac anomalies - the multidisciplinary team at the largest paediatric hospital in the USA - share the advanced techniques and protocols they have developed and refined over the past two decades. These techniques reduce the high mortality rate associated with congenital anomalies during the first year of life. And they prevent the irreversible secondary organ damage caused when surgery is deferred until later in childhood. All of the procedures are described in detail, and original surgical renderings illustrate the techniques. Clear coverage of the entire spectrum of congenital heart disease - anomaly by anomaly, is accompanied by the latest relevant developmental and research issues that differentiate infant heart surgery from surgery of the older child and adult.
