Washington University pediatric cardiologists are known for taking complex cases and are internationally recognized for their research. The team includes cardiac intensivists; cardiothoracic surgeons; cardiologists; cardiac interventionalists; electrophysiologists; cardiac anesthesiologists; and nearly 100 dedicated clinical staff.
Clinical services include:
The Heart Station– inpatient and outpatient non-invasive cardiac testing such as echocardiography; electrocardiography; Holter monitors and cardiac MRIs. These tests are used to diagnose and treat congenital and acquired heart disease in children. It is located on the second floor of St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
Cardiac Catheterization-diagnostic catheterization assists in diagnosing complex heart conditions and helps decide further treatment. Interventional techniques have also been developed that may avoid open heart surgery or help improve recovery after surgery.
Cardiothoracic Surgery-cardiothoracic surgeons, together with the pediatric cardiologists supply surgical options for virtually all forms of congenital heart disease that require repair or correction.
Transplant/Heart Failure Management-more than 500 children have received heart transplants at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The Heart Center averages 15-20 transplants a year with survival rates better than the national average.
