Pediatric Heart Conditions

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. 

Filter by Condition

Browse Alphabetically

Stickler Syndrome

Hereditary conditions affecting the connective tissues of the body, including eye problems, hearing problems, midfacial underdevelopment, spine problems, and early arthritis.

Supraventricular Tachycardia

An abnormally rapid heart rate originating from the upper chambers of the heart.

Syncope

The sudden loss of consciousness previously called a swoon but now commonly called a fainting spell.

Tetralogy of Fallot

Four congenital defects in the heart and its vessels that result in a mixture of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood returning to the body, causing cyanosis.

Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC)

A condition in which the pulmonary veins that bring oxygen-rich blood from the lungs back to the heart are not connected to the left atrium, but instead, drain elsewhere.

Transposition of the Great Arteries

Occurring when the positions of the pulmonary artery and the aorta are reversed.

Tricuspid Atresia

A condition in which there is no tricuspid valve, therefore no blood can flow from the right atrium to the right ventricle. For survival, an opening must be formed.

Truncus Arteriosus

Also called common arterial trunk, a condition in which there is one common vessel or trunk from the heart instead of a separate pulmonary artery and aorta.

Undefined (undifferentiated) connective tissue disorders

A condition with symptoms similar to systemic autoimmune disorders or connective tissue disease, but cannot be classified as a well-defined connective tissue disease.

Vascular Rings

An unusual formation of the aorta and the blood vessels around it, which puts pressure on the trachea and esophagus, making breathing and eating difficult.

Ventricular Septal Defect

An opening between the two lower chambers of the heart.
