OPENPediatrics Releases Geggel's Congenital Heart Disease Library

OPENPediatrics is pleased to announce the launch of Geggel's Congenital Heart Disease Library, created and edited by Dr. Robert Geggel from the Department of Cardiology at Boston Children's Hospital. This is an interactive library comprised of 27 different congenital cardiac lesions including the key clinical features of each lesion. This resource also includes images of anatomic diagrams, electrocardiograms, chest radiographs and gross pathology of each lesion.

Along with the echocardiogram shown here, there are also short video segments related to other diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for each cardiac lesion, including cardiac angiograms, magnetic resonance imaging and footage of actual surgical repair of particular lesions.

In addition to Geggel's Congenital Heart Disease Library, OPENPediatrics offers a number of medical animations, illustrations and video lectures related to pediatric cardiology. See our collection of openly licensed cardiology animations and illustrations, which are available for clinicians to download and use in their presentations and teaching materials.
