A Handbook of Eisenmenger Syndrome and Marfan Syndrome deals with two entirely different diseases – Eisenmenger syndrome, a cyanotic heart disease, and Marfan syndrome, a multisystem disorder of connective tissue.
The features of Eisenmenger syndrome have been well described in Paul Wood’s case series, and it is difficult to find a better description than his till date. However, strategies on managing it have changed a lot in recent years, and this book incorporates the classical description by Paul Wood as well as the newer advances in its management in great details.
Marfan syndrome due to its multisystem manifestation is not well represented in cardiology textbooks. An attempt has been made to describe Marfan syndrome in a simple but comprehensive manner. A short chapter on ‘Straight Back Syndrome’ is also included in this handbook.
Medical students, especially students of medicine and cardiology, will find this handbook very useful.
