We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnose and treat pediatric heart conditions. The following is a list of heart conditions in children that our team of experts treats.
A rare genetic disorder of the connective tissues of the body causing the skin to lose its elasticity and sag. May also affect internal organs, including the blood vessels, heart and lungs.
A very rare congenital heart defect in which the child develops only one ventricle — the pumping chamber of the heart.
A congenital heart defect in which both the aorta and the pulmonary artery are connected to the right ventricle.
A congenital downward displacement of the tricuspid valve (between the heart's upper and lower chambers on the right side) into the heart's right bottom chamber (or right ventricle).
Also called cutis elastic, a group of genetic disorders affecting the connective tissues of the body, especially the skin, joints, and the walls of blood vessels.
Inflammation of the layer of cells lining the inside of the heart muscle and valves.
When the heart cannot properly pump blood to the rest of the body. May be a result of a complex congenital heart defect, cardiomyopathy or myocarditis
The sound of blood flow in the chest heard with the stethoscope. It does not necessarily mean there is an abnormality, just that it is detected.
Usually used to mean elevated blood pressure, caused by resistance to blood flow in the body. May result from certain types of medication, anxiety, or kidney problems.
When the left side of the heart — including the aorta, aortic valve, left ventricle and mitral valve — is underdeveloped.
A congenital heart defect in which the parts of the right side of the heart — the valves, right ventricle, and pulmonary artery — do not develop fully during pregnancy.
A serious pediatric illness that causes inflammation of the blood vessels and can damage the coronary arteries of the heart.
