Angioscopy of Congenital Cardiac Lesions

  • Michel Sargin
Part of the Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine book series (DICM, volume 103)


The concept of endoscopic investigation of the chambers of the heart and the vessels for diagnosis and treatment has been of interest to surgeons for half a century. Numerous attempts have been made to overcome many technical problems, the principal of which is the visualization of heart structures in an opaque medium, such as blood.
