About the Project
Project 2 – Evaluating and Improving Clinical Fetal Heart Intervention
Minimally-invasive catheter-based intervention of fetuses with congenital heart diseases to enhance their chance of being born with reduced malformation severity is feasible today, but much work is necessary to understand the intervention’s effects and build predictive models to aid patient selection and improve outcomes. We work with physicians in one of two centres in the world with an established program in such fetal heart interventions, to help improve and evaluate these new and promising treatment approaches. Work will likely include evaluation of the biomechanical effects of the intervention, biomechanical modelling to predict intervention outcomes, and building predictive prognosis models to minimize risks and maximize patient outcomes.
