  • ​Contains a large number of original pictures of great quality covering the entire cardiac anatomy
  • Reviews a wide variety of adult and embryo hearts
  • Presents information in an accessible and concise format​

This book describes the cardiac development and anatomy of the heart, which is richly illustrated by full color images and examples obtained through the dissection and photography of over 200 hearts. Each embryonic, fetal and adult heart image is supplemented by concise explanations of the key concepts involved.

 

The Atlas of Heart Anatomy and Development presents clearly the stages of the embryonic heart, thus providing a key reference for specialists in fetal medicine. The anatomy section presents each cardiac structure with an emphasis on each individual variability possible. Therefore this will be an important resource for trainees and practicing medical professionals in the discipline, including medical students, residents and specialists in cardiology and cardiac surgery.
