Conditions We Treat
Interventional Cardiology Program
Today, many common and complex heart conditions can be treated through cardiac catheterization. This exciting and ever-evolving therapy offers a minimally invasive approach to diagnosing and treating cardiac conditions, without traditional surgery.
Your child’s care team will collaborate with our interventional cardiologists to determine if this therapy is the best approach for your child. Sometimes, a cardiac catheterization may be needed to gain a clear picture of your child’s condition and best path forward.
Pediatric Heart Conditions We Treat
Interventional cardiologists offer specialized procedures to examine and repair many types of congenital or acquired cardiovascular conditions that may have been diagnosed in your child, including:
- Aortic or pulmonary valve stenosis – narrowed heart valves
- Atrial septal defect – a hole between the upper heart chambers
- Cardiomyopathy – disease affecting the heart muscle
- Coarctation of the aorta (COA) – narrowing of the aorta, the large artery that carries oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the rest of the body
- Conduit stenosis – narrowing of a previously placed valve requiring replacement
- Patent ductus arteriosus – an extra blood vessel that can lead to too much blood flow to the lungs
- Pulmonary artery stenosis – narrowing of vessels which supply blood to the lungs
- Single ventricle defects – defects that result in a heart with a single pumping chamber (that is, hypoplastic left heart syndrome, tricuspid atresia)
