I've seen such a difference in pediatric cardiology over the past 25 years. Not only are kids with heart disease surviving and thriving, but they're also coming back to visit us and have children of their own. It's really wonderful.

Hearing the term peripheral pulmonary stenosis applied to your child can frightening and hard to accept. You may find yourself struggling with a seemingly endless list of questions: What caused this condition? How will it change my child's life? Is surgery necessary? How will this diagnosis affect my family? Where do we go from here?
Learning more about peripheral pulmonary stenosis—which is also sometimes referred to as "pulmonary branch stenosis" or "branch pulmonary artery stenosis"—can help you better understand what's next and what to expect.
The following pages will introduce you to the basics about the condition.
The Boston Children's Hospital Cardiovascular Program team has extensive experience treating children, adolescents and adults with peripheral pulmonary stenosis.

In addition to our medical expertise, we provide patient-centered care that always recognizes your child as an individual—and we offer resources to meet the needs of your entire family.
