Adult Congenital Heart Disease

An adult congenital heart disease program was recently established at USC. The program provides ambulatory and inpatient services to this growing group of patients with specialized needs.

In collaboration with pediatric cardiologists from Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine holds bimonthly conferences on adult patients with congenital heart disease. With specialists in pediatric and adult cardiology as well as cardiothoracic surgery, the group discusses patient cases before and after diagnosis to determine treatment that will optimize care for this complex patient group.
