Nearly one percent of children are born with some form of heart abnormality, also known as a "congenital heart defect." These defects include a broad range of abnormalities, ranging from fairly simple and benign problems to very complex and serious ones. Some of these conditions are diagnosed when an infant is born with a bluish tint to his or her skin (cyanosis), when a health care provider hears a heart murmur during routine examination, or when a child or teenager complains of chest pain or palpitations, or faintsunexpectedly. Sometimes significant heart defects are first discovered by an ultrasound study, diagnosed even before birth. UofL Physicians - Pediatric Cardiology is a group of specialists who care for patients of all ages with congenital heart defects, from before birth, through infancy, childhood and adolescence, and into adulthood.

Our patient-centered, team-based approach means we're able to coordinate virtually everything your child needs including tests, surgeries, advanced clinical procedures and rehabilitation - to keep their heart healthy and strong. Pediatric cardiology is the care of children with congenital heart defects. These are heart conditions that have been present since the child's birth. Due to incomplete or abnormal development of the fetus' heart during early stages of pregnancy, congenital heart defects can occur. While congenital heart defects cannot be prevented and their cause is unknown, there are several advanced treatment options available for children of all ages. A pediatric cardiologist is a pediatrician who is an expert in detecting and treating cardiac problems and abnormalities in children. Since heart problems can be discovered before birth, evaluation and treatment may begin with the fetus. Pediatric cardiologists can also treat infants and adolescents. Pediatric cardiologists may specialize in different areas such as fetal cardiology, … Continue reading

Cardiology Blood flow diagram of the human heart. Blue components indicate de-oxygenated blood pathways and red components indicate oxygenated blood pathways. Cardiology (from Greek kardi, "heart" and - -logia, "study") is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists, a specialty of internal medicine. Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery. Although the cardiovascular system is inextricably linked to blood, cardiology is relatively unconcerned with hematology and its diseases. Some obvious exceptions that affect the function of the heart would be blood tests (electrolyte disturbances, troponins), decreased oxygen carrying capacity (anemia, hypovolemic shock), and coagulopathies. All cardiologists study the disorders of the heart, but the study of adult and child heart disorders are through different training pathways. Therefore, an adult cardiologist (often simply called "cardiologist") is inadequately trained to take care of children, and pediatric cardiologists are not trained … Continue reading
