This book comprehensively covers the latest information about ventricular-vascular morphology and function in congenital heart disease (CHD) assessed by various innovative methodologies.

Anatomical (morphological) abnormalities in CHD are generally accompanied with 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 (morphological and functional abnormalities) importantly interact to determine underlying pathophysiology and generate clinical symptoms in CHD. Therefore, detailed and precise assessment of morphology and function is essential to better understand and treat this disease. Recent advances in technology have provided useful tools for this purpose, and novel findings are accumulating. The information contained here will provide researchers and clinicians with invaluable knowledge in this field.

Dr. Hideaki Senzaki obtained PhD degree in Division of Medicine, Tokyo University, Japan in 1988. He started his carrier as an assistant professor at Tokyo University in 1994. He moved to Saitama Medical University as an assistant professor in 1999 and promoted to a full professor. His main theme is the assessment of cardiovascular dyn...
