The 12th edition is less a departure from the 11th edition than the 11th edition was from the 10th edition.
The table of contents is improved in that the type is larger, the discussion of disorders has been somewhat rearranged, and immediately after the table of contents are color plates that are entirely new in this edition. In comparison with the previous edition, this edition has approximately fewer pages and 40 more contributors.
In addition, the format is more attractive and more visually appealing than that in the previous edition.
This textbook, which initially appeared in the late s or early s, has established and maintained its place as a number one textbook for students, residents, and practitioners in the field of pediatrics. Most of the nation's 25, or more pediatricians are thoroughly familiar with it and literally went to bed with it in the course of their residency programs.
The proliferation of texts in subspecialties in pediatrics or in general pediatrics itself has not diminished the lofty position attained by Nelson's Pediatrics. Although the contents have been changed minimally from the previous edition, in my opinion the adolescent issues are better covered and somewhat improved in the current text.
Residency training programs depend on the contributions of prominent authors in this field. Substance abuse, the legal issues involved in dealing with adolescents, sexual misuse, adolescent pregnancy, and sexually related social diseases are all included in this book.
Relatively new problems to pediatrics, such as acquired immune deficiency disease and Kawasaki disease, are effectively reviewed by recognized authorities. Hypertension, an uncommon problem in pediatric patients, is adequately addressed, and the criteria for its diagnosis are emphasized. The libraries of medical schools, pediatric departments, and hospitals and the pediatric practitioner's office itself will not be complete without the "bible" of the specialty.
Edmund C. Burke, M. Department of Pediatrics Congenital Heart Disease: Morphologic Echocardiographic Correlations, by Elma J. Gussenhoven and Anton E. The two authors work at different institutions in the Netherlands and are trained in different specialties, cardiology and pathology. In addition, one is just beginning her academic career, whereas the other has been an established authority in his field for some time. This heterogeneity seems to have been an asset rather than a handicap, however, as the product of their efforts is a book that will be of value to anyone who is interested in the application of echocardiography to patients with congenital heart disease.
This text is primarily an atlas in which photographs of anatomic specimens are compared with two-dimensional echocardiograms of similar anatomic sites and pathologic conditions.
The anatomic specimens are beautifully sectioned and prepared, and the photographs produced from them are of excellent quality. The echocardiograms are also well done and certainly convey the intended message, although direct comparisons of echocardiograms and high-quality photographs of cardiac anatomy reemphasize the fact that even though rapid progress has been made in the quality of echocardiographic images during the past 5 years, there is still room for substantial improvement with this modality.
In addition, two-dimensional echocardiography is a dynamic imaging tool that puts its best foot forward only when the images obtained are displayed in real time on a television monitor or videotape; selected still-frame reproductions inevitably lose something in clarity and in the amount of information conveyed.
The authors have deliberately and wisely limited their book to a demonstration and discussion of normal cardiac anatomy and the common congenital cardiovascular malformations, not attempting to cover the entire spectrum of complex and rare congenital lesions. In addition to the anatomic and echocardiographic photographs, the nicely integrated text discusses possible pitfalls in echocardiographic technique which can lead to mistaken interpretations, and it also carefully discusses anatomic features that are especially important in the diagnosis of the various malformations.
The text is particularly valuable in that both the echocardiographic and the anatomic observations are based on the principle of sequential chamber analysis, a concept that has greatly simplified and clarified the description of the pathologic changes associated with congenital cardiovascular lesions in recent years.
This book is very well done and will be useful to anyone who is interested in the field of congenital heart disease. I suspect that it will be of particular value to the student or resident who is relatively early in his training, as the format in which the material is presented and the approach that is used simplify what can be a complex and confusing field.
Mair, M. Beneken and S. The book begins with two keynote papers. The remainder of the material is divided into four groups of presentations that address diagnosis, monitoring, therapy and control, and evaluation of criteria and procedures.
The segment on diagnosis consists of five papers. These deal with assessment of preoperative risks, use of a.
