The field of pediatric cardiac interventions has witnessed a dramatic increase in the number and type of procedures performed. We review the most common procedures performed in the catheter laboratory. Lesions are divided according to their physiological characteristics into left-to-right shunting lesions (atrial septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, ventricular septal defect), right-to-left shunting lesions (pulmonary stenosis, pulmonary atresia/intact ventricular septum), right heart obstructive lesions (peripheral arterial pulmonic stenosis, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction), and left heart obstructive lesions (aortic valve stenosis, coarctation of the aorta). In addition, a miscellaneous group of lesions is discussed.
