In Pediatric cardiology
There is no better representation of the need for personalization of care than the breadth and complexity of congenital heart disease. Advanced imaging modalities are now standard of care in the field, and the advancements being made to three-dimensional visualization technologies are growing as a means of pre-procedural preparation. Incorporating emerging modeling approaches, such as computational fluid dynamics, will push the limits of our ability to predict outcomes, and this information may be both obtained and utilized during a single procedure in the future. Artificial intelligence and customized devices may soon surface as realistic tools for the care of patients with congenital heart disease, as they are showing growing evidence of feasibility within other fields. This review illustrates the great strides that have been made and the persistent challenges that exist within the field of congenital interventional cardiology, a field which must continue to innovate and push the limits to achieve personalization of the interventions it provides.
