Adult Congenital Heart Services

 

Evaluation and Management of Congenital Heart Disease into Adulthood

More than 85 percent of children born today with congenital heart disease can expect to reach adult age. As adults, ongoing problems require care from providers with special expertise in congenital heart disease. Making the transition from adolescence to adulthood is often difficult for any person with a lifelong illness, especially congenital heart disease. For most, there has been no organized approach to assure ongoing expert care for congenital heart patients as they reach adulthood.

The Vanderbilt Heart Adult Congenital program, formed in 1995, is a collaborative effort between the Vanderbilt Pediatric Heart Institute and Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute. It provides the expert care necessary for these adults to have the highest quality of life.
