Congenital Heart Disease

Thanks to advances in pediatric cardiac care, there is a growing population of adults with congenital heart disease who previously might not have survived childhood.

Established in 1994 as a partnership between Inova Children’s Hospital and IHVI, Inova’s Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Program was one of the first such programs in the country. Today, the ACHD program provides complete continuity of care for patients with a variety of congenital heart defects, including those complicated by heart rhythm problems, heart failure and pulmonary hypertension.

The ACHD program also partners with Inova Women’s Hospital to achieve the safest delivery possible for mothers with congenital heart defects and their babies.

The ACHD clinic is located in IHVI’s Advanced Disease Management Clinic, on Inova Fairfax Medical Campus. This provides patients seamless access to the collective expertise of Inova’s highly skilled pediatric and adult specialists in a single location, to improve outcomes and enhance quality of life.

Areas of specialization cover the full range of IHVI’s advanced cardiac therapies including:

  • Adult congenital cardiac catheterization
  • Adult congenital EP
  • Adult congenital surgery
  • Proactive evaluation of tetralogy patients
  • Maternal-fetal medicine

Structural Heart Disease Program

Eric Sarin, MDOur highly experienced team is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for people suffering from structural heart disease.

Using the combined expertise of cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, radiologists specializing in cardiac imaging and nurse practitioners, we focus on providing a comprehensive assessment to identify the best course of treatment for patients with valvular heart disease or AFib patients undergoing a procedure for stroke risk reduction.

Pictured: Eric Sarin, MD, Co-Director, IHVI Structural Heart Program; Section Chief, Adult Cardiac Surgery; Co-Director, Cardiovascular Research

We utilize a minimally invasive approach whenever possible for the following procedures:

  • Transcatheter repair of intracardiac structures
  • Repair or replacement of mitral, aortic, pulmonic and tricuspid valves
  • Left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) for stroke risk reduction in patients with AFib

IHVI has a state-of-the-art hybrid operating room where cardiac surgeons, cardiologists and electrophysiologists operate together, resulting in fewer complications and shorter recovery periods for patients.

"When we talk about structural heart and valve disease, we’re referring to dysfunctions related to the valves or walls separating the chambers of the heart. Historically, these were managed with open heart surgery. With the explosion in technology over the last decade, we can now treat these patients just as effectively using a minimally invasive approach."
