Make a Difference

The Promise Campaign will expand our care to more children, and offer comfort to the people who love them.

The Coronary Anomalies Program at Texas Children’s Hospital is a multidisciplinary program dedicated to the diagnosis and management of patients with congenital coronary anomalies.

Congenital coronary anomalies are the second most common cause of sudden cardiac death in children and young adults. These anomalies are congenital defects in one or more of the coronary arteries of the heart and may relate to the origin, location, size or course of the coronary artery.

In the past, successful treatment of these patients has been inconsistent. To improve the care and treatment of children with these types of heart problems, Texas Children's Hospital established the Coronary Anomalies Program.

The Coronary Anomalies Program at Texas Children’s Hospital is staffed by a multidisciplinary core team of cardiologists, congenital heart surgeons, radiologists and researchers. These experts work together to provide the best treatment to patients with congenital coronary anomalies, study their outcomes and educate health care providers and the public about this problem.

A cornerstone of this team's approach is the development and use of a clinical algorithm to facilitate the diagnosis and management of these patients. The team presents cases in monthly multidisciplinary meetings to determine the best course of action for each patient, and then tracks the patients’ outcomes over time.

To refer a patient to the Coronary Anomalies Program at Texas Children’s Hospital, please call the main referral line at 832-824-3278.

The goals of the Coronary Anomalies Program are to:

  • Treat patients with congenital coronary anomalies in an optimal and consistent way, based on the most current and reliable evidence available.
  • Educate health care providers and the public about the latest information on risks, evaluation and treatment alternatives for patients with congenital coronary anomalies.
  • Study the outcomes related to congenital coronary anomalies to improve the management of patients with this disease.
  • Engage patients and families throughout the care management and longitudinal follow-up process to learn about their on-going experiences with this diagnosis.
