Specialized terms: Pediatric interventional cardiology; Structural heart disease intervention
Our team is actively participating in several studies evaluating new catheter based therapies for congenital heart disease.
The Medtronic Harmony Valve study is for patients who require a new pulmonary valve but want to avoid open heart surgery.
The Gore Medical ASSURRED study is evaluating the new CardioFORM ASD Occluder and provides a new way to close atrial septal defects without the need for open heart surgery.
The Gore Medical REDUCE study is evaluating the use of the CardioFORM Septal Occluder as a means of closing a patent foramen ovale to reduce the risk of cryptogenic stroke.
The Gore Medical RELIEF study is evaluating the use of the CardioFORM Septal Occluder as a means of closing a patent foramen ovale to reduce the migraine headache burden.
