Abstract
Dr. Perloff, the founding father of the field of adult congenital heart disease, presents a decades worth of research and clinical data in the completely redefined 3rd edition to bring you the most current information. With advances in diagnosis and treatment in children, more and more of those with CHD survive well into adulthood. Expert contributors in various fields offer a multi-disciplinary, multi-system approach to treatment so you get comprehensive coverage on all aspects of the subspecialty, including basic unoperated malformations, medical and surgical perspectives, postoperative residue, and sequelae. As someone who treats these patients, you need to be ready to provide the continual care they require. Conveys a multidisciplinary, multi-system approach to the lifelong care of adult CHD patients to put treatment in a broader context. Presents information in a consistent, logical style so the information you need is easy to find and apply. Supplements the text with 600 clear conceptual illustrations to clarify difficult concepts.

Abstract
This book is devoted solely to the tricuspid valve and its role in congenital heart disease. Tricuspid valve anomalies are part of the pathological spectrum in various congenital heart diseases, including Ebstein anomaly and tricuspid valve dysplasia, with different pathophysiology and clinical implications. This book covers all relevant aspects of such anomalies, including diagnosis, therapy, and follow-up. Further topics addressed include the way in which the tricuspid valve may become the 'systemic' valve in some congenital diseases, with important consequences, and the involvement of the tricuspid valve in the right-sided heart complications often seen in adults with congenital heart disease.
