2008 Guidelines for the Management of Adults With CHD

For parents of children with CHD's only (you won't be interested otherwise). I found this November 7th publication on guidelines for management of adult patients with CHD's. I know some of the issues have been discussed at our group before. It is a PDF file you would have to download.

Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines:
Executive Summary: A Report of the American College of
2008 Guidelines for the Management of Adults With Congenital Heart Disease.

It outlines management issues for CHDs including patients with Shones and many issues associated with LVOT obstruction, criteria for valve replacement and issues with bicuspid aortic valves.

I am glad you find it helpful. I am at the point where I am not sure I want to know more and am considering keeping my eyes to the ground until I need to make A DECISION again.

Still, I can't resist :)
