Academic and Clinical Position
Dr. Armsby cares for children with all forms of congenital or acquired heart disease. She also holds specialty clinics for children with inherited or acquired dyslipidemias (staffed with a pediatric dietician specialist) and for children following heart transplantation.
Dr. Armsby (along with Dr. Grant Burch) is one of the two pediatric cardiac interventionalists in Oregon who received advanced training in interventional cardiology. She performs all types of cardiac catheterizations including balloon valvuloplasty, pulmonary and coarctation arterioplasty and device closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects.
The congenital cardiac catheterization lab at OHSU is one of eight premier cardiac catheterization laboratories in the U.S. participating in the Congenital Cardiac Catheterization Outcomes Project. This project is supported by the National Institute of Health with a goal to develop methods to assess outcomes, provide performance information, understand the efficacy and safety of case types and ultimately to use the information to improve the quality of care delivered in cath labs throughout the country.
