Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The practice of pediatric cardiology has undergone remarkable changes over the past decade. Cardiac structural abnormalities may frequently be diagnosed with echocardiography alone, and treatment for many of these structural problems may be corrected during cardiac catheterization. Arrhythmia diagnosis and management have made similar progress, such that diagnosis of arrhythmia mechanisms and catheter ablative therapy may be performed during a single procedure, sparing the young patient a lifetime of antiarrhythmic drug therapy. Cardiac transplantation is now included among the treatment options for some patients with severe congenital or acquired cardiac abnormalities unresponsive to standard therapy. In this paper, we provide a brief description of current applications of recent advances in the practice of pediatric cardiology.
