Structural heart disease refers to conditions that affect your heart’s valves, walls, chambers or muscles. These conditions include cardiomyopathy, congenital heart disease and heart valve disease.
Adult Congenital Cardiology
ACHD patients need continued monitoring throughout their lifetime. Many will need further surgical or medical interventions at different stages in their life.
The goals of the Center are to investigate the prevalence of Systemic Sclerosis and the potential association of geographical and occupational clustering in Lousiana and the Gulf Area.
Infiltrative Cardiomyopathy Center
CMRs are medical-imaging technology that noninvasively evaluate the function and structure of the cardiovascular system. They are routinely performed on cardiomyopathy patients to identify infiltrative diseases, myocarditis, and myocardial viability.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Center
PAD happens when blood flow through the arteries is reduced because of plaque buildup. It often happens in the legs and feet.
Shock and Mechanical Support
LSU offers mechanical circulatory support to patients whose cardiac function is depressed due to a heart attack or myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO)
This is a special treatment for patients with respiratory disease that does not respond to maximum medical care. With ECMO, blood from the patient's vein is pumped through an artificial lung where oxygen is added and carbon dioxide is removed. The blood is then returned back to the baby.
