Boston Children’s Hospital is home to the largest pediatric catheterization program in the U.S., with five fulltime dedicated interventional cardiologists who perform over 1,400 catheterizations each year on infants through young adults.

Drawing from a global talent pool, our catheterization specialists have led the field in innovation, expertise and non-surgical care of the pediatric heart patient for over 30 years. 

IMPACT Registry

Since 2011, Boston Children's Heart Center has been reporting data to the IMPACT registry, which documents cardiac catheterizations performed at each participating healthcare provider. Among the more than 80 participating institutions in the United States, half report a quarterly volume of less than 65 cases, while Boston Children’s consistently exceeds a case volume of 300.
