Overview of interventional pediatric cardiology in 2004

Schneider D.J., Levi D.S., Serwacki M.J., Moore S.D., Moore J.W.

Pediatric interventional catheterization is an expanding specialty with a range of mature, emerging, and investigative procedures and technologies. Many dysfunctional obstructions and/or shunts caused by congenital heart defects may be treated or significantly palliated in the catheterization laboratory. These include valvar pulmonary or aortic stenosis, the patent ductus arteriosus, coarctation of the aorta, branch pulmonary stenosis, atrial septal defects and even ventricular septal defects. Valve replacement technology, approaches to complex heart diseases such as single ventricle, and fetal interventions are subjects of active investigations. A comprehensive review of the present and future of interventional pediatric cardiology is presented.
