Using a new technique—right parasternal scanning—the aortic arch and brachiocephalic vessels were studied in 50 children under 18 months of age. Complete visualization was accomplished in 47 patients including those 1 under 1, grams, 2 with indwelling endotracheal tubes, 3 who had D- or L-transposition, or 4 with right or double aortic arch.
Inadequate studies were related to bilateral pneumothorax 2 neonates and lack of cooperation 1 infant. Close correlation was obtained between images of the aorta by echocardiography and by angiography. Two-dimensional echocardiography can now visualize the aortic arch in small infants and children. In conjunction with another new technique—simultaneous Doppler flow-detection—coarctation of the aorta can be completely evaluated noninvasively in children of all ages including neonates.

Circulation 55 —, PubMed Google Scholar. This volume was a great help to many of us in pediatric cardiology who were discovering the great clinical value of the noninvasive approach to diagnosis. This gave us a 'running start' for our own entry into the field. At that time, the 2 D or sector echocardiogram was finding increasing usefulness and there were several illustrations of this tech- nique, integrated into that volume.
Since , the field of 2 D echocardiography has grown enormously in its usefulness, to the point that it has reduced the need for invasive studies, and has enhanced the precision of invasive studies when required. It is now time for a systematic and thorough approach to this field, and I am delighted that Jean Lintermans has provided us with this book.

The pictures are uniformly superb and are very well labelled. The organization is cen- tered around diagnostic categories, but the same attention to detail is pre- sent that made the first volume so useful.
I particularly value the extensive documentation of diagnostic findings, with numerous literature citations. Read more Read less. Product details Paperback: pages Publisher: Springer; Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed.
