During the past 20 years, great progress has been made in the diagnosis and surgical management of almost every form of congenital heart defect. This progress is due to improved cardiac catheterization techniques and improved surgical techniques. These are in turn due to the accumulation of detailed knowledge of the embryologic development, anatomic relations, and physiologic function of the heart. Dr. Okamoto has made many contributions to our knowledge of the embryology and anatomy of congenital heart defects, and his experience and knowledge are evident in the lucidity of this text.
The tremedous knowledge that has accumulated in this field
