VIDEO: Advances in Congenital Heart Therapy Technologies

Tom Jones, M.D., director, cardiac catheterization laboratories, Seattle Children’s Hospital, explains some of the new technologies being used to treat congenital heart disease. He discusses the recent trial he served as principle investigator for the new Harmony transcatheter pulmonary valve, the development of a bioresorbable transcatheter septal occluder device, development of large bioresorbable stents for use in pediatric cases, and use of virtual and augmented reality to better understand and guide very complex congenital heart procedures. Jones also explains a patient case where a 3-D printed heart and vessels from the patient helped the heart team understand all the options and how to tackle a valve replacement in a child with a single ventricle.

Jones shared some of these advances in congenital heart intervention sessions at the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) 2021 meeting.

Cardiovascular Ultrasound | June 14, 2022

The X5-1c transducer from Philips provides enhanced clinical information in transthoracic imaging over a standard phased array transducer. When combined with nSIGHT Plus image formation on the EPIQ CVx cardiology ultrasound system, the X5-1c transducer enables image quality rarely seen from a transthoracic transducer. 

Watch the video to learn about the benefits which may include decreased exam time due to faster access to echo windows, increased confidence in quantification results and more.
