Cardiac Catheterization in Congenital Heart Disease
Pediatric and Adult
by Charles E. Mullins

Cardiac Catheterization in Congenital Heart Disease details the equipment and techniques for performing safe and successful procedures, with a strong emphasis on avoiding complications.

Cardiac Catheterization in Congenital Heart Disease serves as an essential manual for pediatric and adult interventional cardiologists worldwide.
