Specialized heart care

Congenital heart disease is the most common birth defect in the U.S., but due to major advances in medical and surgical care, more than 90% of these patients are surviving into adulthood.

OHSU's Adult Congenital Heart Disease program offers many specialty services, including:

  • Adolescent and adult transition program
  • High risk pregnancy and heart disease care
  • Comprehensive cardiology clinic
  • Heart failure treatment
  • Heart rhythm procedures such as electrophysiology, pacemaker and ablation for complete arrhythmias
  • Noninvasive imaging, including MRI and CT scans
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise testing
  • Cardiac transplant evaluations
  • Cardiac catheterization and interventional procedures
  • Comprehensive surgical repair

Patient story - Susan

Susan's StoryWhen I was born, I had Tetralogy of Fallot, a congenital heart condition. I had two heart surgeries, one when I was two months old and then open heart surgery when I was 14. When I moved from Alaska to Oregon, I needed to find a cardiologist. My doctor in Alaska was trained at OHSU, and so I knew it was a good place to go.
