"The book will be of interest to most device implanters as it does offer some useful tips that can be applied to conventional adult practice, in addition to explaining how to implant in patients with congenital heart disease." (Cardiology News, October - November 2007) "This is a concise guide...that uses an easy to navigate format. It makes excellent use of tables, drawings, and clinical vignettes..."
