Interventional cardiology.Interventional cardiology refers to procedures performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory to treat congenital heart disease.

Development of various interventional procedures has allowed the pediatric cardiologist (interventionalist) to successfully treat certain kinds of congenital heart disease in the cath lab which previously required open heart surgery.

Now, some septal defects (holes), narrowed vessels/valves and patent ductus arteriosus can be repaired in the cath lab. In the future, even valve replacement may be available.
