Anatomical (morphological) abnormalities in congenital heart disease (CHD) are generally accompanied by abnormal loading conditions, which, in turn, cause ventricular and vascular functional impairments. The functional impairments may also exist independently of the anatomical abnormalities. These two factors – morphological and functional abnormalities – importantly interact to determine the underlying pathophysiology and generate clinical symptoms in CHD. This book comprehensively covers the latest information on ventricular-vascular morphology and function in CHD as assessed by means of various innovative methodologies. Recent advances in technology have provided useful tools for this purpose, and novel findings are emerging that further impact understanding of the disease. This text will provide researchers and clinicians with invaluable information concerning this field.
