Congenital Heart Disease Center


Hideki Uemura, MD, PhD Professor


Our clinical activity is providing surgical interventions and follow-up for patients including neonates, infants, and adults with congenital heart disease which is structural heart problem at birth, for example ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect,  coarctation of aorta, etc. For educational purpose, we have regular seminars on congenital cardiac morphology.  Our research activity is development of surgical methods and peri-operative care by reviewing our clinical data for achieving even better surgical outcomes. We also have a collaboration project with University of Pittsburgh entitled “Presurgical evaluation of repairs for congenital heart disease using flow simulation.” The goal of this project is to develop a reliable method for presurgical planning using computational fluid dynamics.
