This is the first book to deal exclusively with the problem of arrhythmia in patients with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) and provide state-of-the-art information on diagnosis and management. Written mainly by a panel of pediatric cardiologists and electrophysiologists, who also take care of adults with CHD, it bridges the gap between the management of pediatric and adult arrhythmias. The book opens with a general discussion of CHD and the cardiac electrical system before moving on to cover the pathogenesis of CHD and the mechanisms that underlie individual arrhythmias. Section Two deals with commonly encountered CHD sub-populations and the arrhythmias specific to these patients. The third section of the book deals with therapy, outlining all the various options available for management of these patients.
