Pediatric Cardiology

Congenital Disorders and Preventive Cardiology
  • Thomas J. Coates
  • Bruce J. Masek


In contrast to adult cardiology, which is dominated by coronary artery disease and hypertension, pediatric cardiology has been concerned traditionally with the study and treatment of congenital disorders. Psychological interests include behavioral management of the child with congenital disorders and preparation of these children for diagnostic and surgical procedures. Two new areas are emerging as important for the pediatric cardiologist: early onset and treatment of elevated blood pressure and primary prevention of risk factors related to acquired cardiovascular disease.
