Catheter-Based Interventions for Congenital Heart Disease

Jeff Meadows, Joseph Forbess, Ina Michel-Behnke, Matthias Sigler and Alan Nugent

Over the last 5 years the advances in catheter based interventions for congenital heart disease include new procedures, devices and importantly a prospective blinded randomized controlled trial that demonstrates to the field of Pediatric Interventional Cardiology that equipment used to treat children can in fact be studied adequately. The purpose of this report is not to be a comprehensive overview, but to provide a description of recent innovations and discoveries in catheter based interventions for congenital heart disease. In some of these areas, foreseeable advances are also discussed.
