Congenital Malformations of the Heart. 2 Bde.
Second revised Edition. - Cambridge, Harvard University Press, 1960, gr.8, 204 pp. 1049 pp., 2 orig. Leinenbände mit Schutzumschlägen feines Exemplar. Revised Editon! Helen Brooke Taussig (1898-1986) was America's first pediatric cardiologist. This greatly expanded edition reflects the dramatic advances in cardiology and cardiac surgery that occured after the first edition of 1947."Knowledge has increased so greatly since the first appearance of this famous book that the author not only has extensively revised the earlier text, but has added to it considerably. Several new chapters include material on pulmonary hypertension, the Taussig-Bing malformation, defective development of the right ventricle with an intact ventricular septum, and aortic septal defect. The various types of septal defect are discussed as regards both the clinical syndrome and their operability. An addition to the revised edition is the Visual Index, designed to show at a glance the essential features of the various malformations. Presenting the ABC's of the common malformations of the heart, the Visual Index shows the age, sex, and activity of the patient the size and shape of the heart the characteristic murmurs and the electrocardiogram. Dr. Taussig's approach is clinical throughout, in order to explain clearly the way the heart functions and to enable the physician to reason logically about a malformation. The author's intention is to aid the physician in making the decisions which are his responsibility - to recommend operation when necessary and to advise against it when preferable. Volume I is designed to orient the student and the general practitioner in the basic methods of approach for the diagnosis of congenital malformations of the heart. Although the book emphasizes the information derived from physical examination, x-ray, and fluoroscopy, the angiocardiograms characteristic of the various anomalies are the strong new feature of this volume. The chapter on medical care gives basic information in regard to the treatment of patients with congenital malformations of the heart. Volume II is designed for the pediatrician, the internist, and the cardiologist, and gives detailed information on each of the specific malformations. The book is heavily illustrated with x-rays and electrocardiograms, which are all based on proved cases. Diagrams of x-rays are inserted to clarify the changes in the contour of the heart. Circulatory diagrams of all the malformations of the heart show the basic changes in the circulation caused by each of them. Illustrations of the anatomical abnormalities have been drawn as accurately as possible from actual specimens." A Commonwealth Fund Book, HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, Cambridge 38, Massachusetts
