The only journal focused exclusively on the study and treatment of congenital defects in children and adults. Congenital Heart Disease: Clinical Studies from Fetus to Adulthood is a new, clinical journal focusing on congenital heart disease in children and adults. Though the number of infants born with heart disease each year is relatively small (approximately 1% of the population), advances in the treatment of such malformations have led to increased life spans for this population. Consequently, in the United States today most patients treated for congenital heart disease are over the age of 20. What are the special needs of adults with congenital heart disease? What are the latest developments in the care of the fetus, infants, and children? Who should treat these patients? How should they be treated?
Congenital Heart Disease publishes articles on heart disease as it relates to the following areas: Clinical pediatric and adult cardiology, Cardiac imaging, Preventive cardiology, Diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization, Electrophysiology, Surgery, Long-term follow-up, particularly as it relates to older children and adult congenital heart disease.
