Conditions we treat

Heart conditions we treat at CHoR

Our cardiologists care for children who have heart disease or abnormalities. We might see a child for a specific heart condition that we can treat with a single visit or two; in other cases, such as children with congenital heart disease, we develop a long-term bond as they grow up and manage their condition over time.

With every case, we aim to develop a tailored care heart care plan using the least-invasive treatments, doing our best to get your child back to the important job of just being a kid.

Care for every heart condition: Developing the best heart care plan possible for you and your child

Whether your child is born with a congenital heart defect or problems develop in the following years, trust our expert cardiac specialists to develop the best care plan at our pediatric hospital. We care for children with a range of conditions, including:

  • Arrhythmias and conduction abnormalities, variations in heartbeats and electrical impulses 
    • Complete heart block
    • Long-Q-T syndrome (LQTS)
    • Premature atrial contraction (PAC) and premature ventricular contraction (PVC)
    • Pulmonary stenosis 
    • Sinus bradycardia
    • Sinus tachycardia
    • Sinus node dysfunction (SND)
    • Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), paroxysmal atrial tachycardia (PAT) or paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
    • Ventricular tachycardia (VT)
    • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW)
  • Cardiac neurodevelopment 
  • Cardiology and genetics, including Turner’s disease, where children are born with heart defects in addition to chromosomal abnormalities
  • Cardiomyopathy, where your heart muscle isn’t doing its job to pump blood through the body
  • Chest pain 
  • Chest wall deformities, where we collaborate with pulmonologists and radiologists to identify issues 
  • Congenital heart diseases (pediatric and adult)
    • Aortic valve stenosis (AS)
    • Atrial septal defect (ASD)
    • Atrioventricular canal (AVC or AV canal)
    • Coarctation of the aorta (CoA)
    • Double outlet right ventricle (DORV)
    • Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS)
    • Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)
    • Pulmonary atresia
    • Tetralogy of Fallot
    • Transposition of the great arteries
    • Tricuspid atresia
    • Ventricular septal defect (VSD)
  • Connective tissue diseases that can impact blood flow 
  • Dyslipidemias, or elevated cholesterol 
  • Heart failure
  • Heart murmurs
  • Hypertension 
  • Kawasaki disease and other causes of myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle 
  • Obesity 
  • Syncope/palpitations, in which low blood pumping can cause fainting and other complications  
  • Neuromuscular diseases, which – because the heart is one of your most important muscles – are treated in tandem with pulmonology, neurology and physical medicine and rehabilitation 
  • Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and other syncope/palpitation disorders where blood doesn’t flow appropriately, leading to symptoms such as fainting 

Receive a second opinion about your child's diagnosis

Our pediatric cardiologists offer a second opinion to help you feel comfortable about your child’s diagnosis and treatment options.
