Cardiac knowledge advanced rapidly in the late 19th and early 20th century, [47] even though this was still the age before therapy, the era of pathologic anatomy. The culmination of this era in the history of pediatric cardiology came with the publication in 1936 of Maude Abbott’s great Atlas of congenital cardiac disease. [2]
