The Complex Biventricular Repair Program at Children's Health℠ offers leading-edge care for children with severe congenital heart defects, which happen when the heart does not form properly in the womb. Traditionally, most children with these heart problems needed a heart transplant or a procedure called single ventricle repair. Single ventricle repair can reduce the need for the transplant by repairing one of the heart's pumping chambers. But because only one heart chamber is repaired, children may experience poor circulation and long-term complications.
Children’s Health is improving on this by offering a state-of-the-art approach called biventricular repair. Unlike single ventricle repair, this approach repairs both heart chambers so they can both pump blood. This can improve circulation and quality of life.
Our team of expert surgeons and cardiologists evaluate babies with severe congenital heart defects to see if this procedure may be right for them. Then we tailor this procedure to each child’s unique needs, studying their heart from every angle and even creating 3D models of their heart to plan the surgery. We will support your child and family every step of the way and do everything we can to help your child live a happy, healthy life.
