With one of only two catheter labs in Oregon dedicated to children, we perform more than 200 procedures a year with consistently excellent outcomes. These procedures include: • Foramen ovale closure • Atrial septal defect • Ventricular sepal defect device closure • Endovascular embolization (or coiling) • Percutaneous pulmonary valve replacement • Edwards SAPIEN and Melody transcatheter pulmonary valve procedures We also offer hybrid procedures –– surgeons and cardiologists working together on babies too sick to endure open-heart surgery or two small for most catheter-based procedures. Heart surgery As a leading program for children’s heart care, we perform more than 200 surgeries a year, including complex open-heart surgeries: • Three-stage surgery (Norwood, Glenn and Fontan procedures) to treat hypoplastic left heart syndrome • Arterial switch transposition of the great arteries • Ross procedure for aortic valve replacement Our surgical results meet or exceed national standards.
