From the reviews: "Pediatric congenital heart disease is the focus of this book. This manual provides an operational overview of a pediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory as well as a guide for percutaneous, catheter-based cardiac catheterization techniques. ... It will be of interest to students, technicians, physicians in training, and pediatric cardiologists. It may also be of interest to cardiac catheterization laboratory personnel, such as nurses and technicians, who work closely with pediatric cardiologists in the laboratory."
