Interventional Catheterization Outcomes

Valley Children’s Cardiac Catheterization program offers state-of-the-art pediatric diagnostic and
interventional procedures for patients with congenital and acquired heart disease, including device closure of cardiac defects, balloon valvuloplasties, angioplasty, stent implantation and percutaneous valve implantations.

For decades, our team has been a leader in using minimally invasive alternatives for the repair of
congenital heart defects, such as the Melody™ Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve for replacement of failing, surgically placed pulmonary valves. Our program is actively involved in local and national clinical trials.

** IMPACT–National Cardiovascular Data Registry through the American College of Cardiology. The IMPACT Registry® assesses the prevalence, demographics, management and outcomes of pediatric and adult congenital heart disease (CHD) patients who undergo diagnostic catheterizations and catheter-based interventions. Its data support the development of evidence-based guidelines for CHD treatment that will improve outcomes for CHD patients of all ages.
