Pediatric Interventional Cardiology

Pediatric Heart Defects

At CHRISTUS Health, we offer diagnostic and interventional cardiac catheterization for infants, children, and adolescents with congenital heart defects. Our multidisciplinary team has a wide range of interventional procedures including opening heart valves which are partially or completely closed, closing/opening abnormal blood vessels and connections in the heart, arteries and veins, or closing/creating holes in the heart. Some heart problems that previously required open-heart surgery can now be fixed in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab. This provides a non-surgical and minimally-invasive way to diagnose and treat heart conditions.
