From the beginning of care, through treatment, and into recovery, we provide an experience that’s right for children and families. Children’s National Health System provides a wide range of clinical services and specialties dedicated to improving children’s health.

Congenital Heart Disease

According to the American Heart Association, about nine of every 1,000 babies born in the United States have a congenital (present at birth) heart defect. This is a problem that occurs as the baby's heart is developing during pregnancy, before the baby is born. Congenital heart defects are the most common birth defects.

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF)

Tetralogy of Fallot is a condition of several related congenital defects that occur due to abnormal development of the fetal heart during the first eight weeks of pregnancy.

Aortic Stenosis

Aortic stenosis is a heart defect that may be present at birth (congenital) or it may develop later in life (acquired).

Aortic Coarctation

Coarctation of the aorta is a congenital (present at birth) heart defect involving a narrowing of the aorta.

Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA)

Transposition of the great arteries is a congenital heart defect in which the large vessels that take blood away from the heart to the lungs, or to the body, are improperly connected.
