Invasive Hemodynamics of Adult Congenital Heart Disease: From Shunts to Coarctation

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Adults with congenital heart disease are a growing population with increasingly more complex disease, in large part due to improvements in delivery of care to the pediatric population. Cardiac catheterization is an integral component of diagnosis and management in these patients. Careful attention to detail and a thorough understanding of intracardiac hemodynamics are critical to performing complete diagnostic evaluations. This article outlines the most commonly encountered lesions with guidelines for invasive assessment to help guide further therapy.
