There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
We're thinking not only in terms of getting the child through a procedure today, but also of how life might be for that child at age 50, 60, 70. How do we plan their management over many decades? It's such an important part of making decisions about every child's care.
--Pedro del Nido, MD, Boston Children's chief of Cardiac Surgery
The news that your child has pulmonary vein stenosis can be hard to hear and difficult to accept. Not only are you grappling with all of your child’s immediate medical needs; you may also be wondering what the diagnosis means for the future, and how it will affect your family over the long term.
Learning the basics about pulmonary vein stenosis—what it involves, how it develops and how it can be treated—can be a helpful first step in better understanding what to expect in the weeks and months to come.
Boston Children’s has a dedicated Pulmonary Vein Stenosis Program whose expert clinicians have many years of experience treating children, adolescents and adults with the condition.
Our specialized training in pediatric cardiology means that we understand the particular challenges, circumstances and intricacies of working with young people with pulmonary vein stenosis and other rare and serious heart problems. 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.
Boston Children's is home to a non-invasive cardiac imaging program.
