Fetal cardiology is an important part of management for high-risk pregnancies: one in every 100 babies is born with a heart problem. Fully updated, this second edition of Fetal Cardiology covers all aspects of fetal heart disease and relevant non-cardiac aspects of diagnosis and management. This handbook provides clinically relevant guidance in a concise, practical format which is ideal for use in the clinic and as a quick reference for the reader.
Featuring new chapters on the three vessel trachea view and neurodevelopment issues in fetal cardiac disease, and brand new high-quality annotated images; this new edition is the definitive pocket guide to the subject.
Clearly structured to allow a systematic approach to diagnosis, decision making, and patient counselling, Fetal Cardiology is perfect as a refresher for experienced clinicians in fetal and cardiological care, or as an informative overview for the paediatrician, echocardiographer, and trainees in associated disciplines.

After completing postgraduate training in paediatrics and perinatal paediatrics, Dr Archer trained in paediatric cardiology and became a consultant paediatric cardiologist in Oxford. His main research interests are in neonatal and fetal cardiology and he has written and taught in these fields in UK and abroad. He has recently retired and lives in Oxfordshire.
Nicky Manning qualified in London in 1978 and after working in London and Norwich, started working in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in November 1980, initially in Prenatal Diagnosis with an interest in clinical genetics. Since 1994 she has specialised in Fetal Cardiology but continues to work in Fetal Medicine and also maintains links with general prenatal diagnosis.
