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.
Aortic valve stenosis (also referred to as aortic stenosis) occurs when the aortic valve is narrowed or thickened and causes obstruction. Learn more.
An opening between the heart's two upper chambers, which lets some blood from the left atrium return to the right atrium instead of flowing to the body.
When the common valve between the upper and lower chambers doesn't close properly, allowing blood to leak backward from the heart's lower chambers to the upper ones.
When the aorta is pinched or constricted, usually between the upper and lower half of the body, obstructing blood flow to the lower part and increasing blood pressure in the upper.
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).
In hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), 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.
Caused when the left ventricle of the heart contracts, part of the valve falls back into the left atrium, allowing blood to leak back through the valve into the atrium.
A tube-like connection between the aorta and pulmonary artery, which usually closes shortly after birth, but sometimes doesn't close, commonly in premature infants.
A pulmonary valve that doesn't open properly, causing the right ventricle of the heart to pump harder, restricting the amount of blood reaching the lungs for oxygenation.
Single ventricle defect is an umbrella term for several different types of congenital heart diseases in which the heart has only one functional pumping chamber.
Tetralogy of Fallot — or TOF — is a combination of four congenital heart defects. Learn more.
