As per available reports about 58 relevant Journals, 22 Conferences, 25 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to pediatric cardiology and about 1025 articles are being published on pediatric cardiology.
Pediatric Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart be it human or animal. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists, a specialty of internal medicine. Pediatric cardiologists are pediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery.

Scope and importance:
Paediatric cardiology deals exclusively with heart diseases involving children. It may be surprising for the lay public and even medical fraternity that defects and deviations in the formation of heart forms the commonest congenital malformations . About 8 new-borns out of one thousand live births will have one form of cardiac defects or other, ranging from minor to very complex ones. This would automatically entail fairly bulky health care burden. However it is a paradox that even the best educated are tuned to recognising the existence of cardiac maladies as those afflicting predominantly the adult population. Both the public and private hospitals are readily catering to adult coronary heart diseases, which, albeit being very justifiable sometimes borders on to lucrative economic equations. Neonatologists and general paediatricians’ roles are now on the rise in recognising children with heart problems. An honest third generation paediatrician will readily agree that even a “simple” problem like co arctation of aorta (narrowing of the main body artery) can be easily missed by even the “most experienced” and this unfortunately can result in deaths, many a times with wrong diagnostic labels. Though Paediatric cardiology has been one of the first paediatric subspecialties to be evolved in paediatrics in the west complete absence of exclusive paediatric cardiology training facilities and immense economic and infrastructural demands and above all extreme scarcity of medical personnel trained exclusively in paediatric cardiology precluded so far any significant growth of this paediatric subspecialty.
What are the career opportunities?
The opportunities in Pediatric Cardiology are many and varied. Pediatric Cardiology is often the cornerstone of large academic medical centers and there are many divisions of high volume and high intensity. There are also many small-to-medium sized programs with most divisions of Pediatric Cardiology averaging 2-3 cardiologists per 1 million populations served. Private practice opportunities of various sizes and clinical service exist throughout the country. Career opportunities range from
1) Predominantly clinical activities
2) A career in an academic setting as a clinician educator or researcher on a tenure track or some combination of the two
3) Hospital based settings with academic collaborations with a larger tertiary care centre. 4) A private practice setting usually with referrals to a large center for surgery or. Cath interventions
To successfully enter a specialized clinical area of cardiology (such as interventional Cath or EP and others) a fourth year of additional training is often needed.
Pediatric Cardiology is that branch of medicine concerned with the study of congenital cardiac malformations, acquired heart diseases and abnormalities of the systemic and pulmonary circulations in the fetus, new-born, child and young adult. The scope of pediatric cardiology practice is extensive. Pediatric Cardiologists evaluate and care for fetuses, neonates, infants, children, adolescents, young adults, and adults. Special areas of clinical and academic interest include: Intensive Cardiac Care, Cardiac Catheterization and Intervention, Electrophysiology, Imaging, Fetal Cardiology, Exercise Physiology, Preventive Cardiology, Heart Failure and Transplantation, and Pulmonary Hypertension. Cardiology is practiced in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Additionally, Pediatric Cardiologists can have a career that focuses on translational or basic science research, or in medical education. The scope of conditions cared for by Pediatric Cardiologists is broad and includes congenital heart defects, heart muscle disorders, rhythm disturbances , hypertension, and other systemic disorders affecting the cardiovascular system. A significant majority of activities in Pediatric Cardiology require expertise in procedural and/or interpretive activities.
The global market for pediatric interventional cardiology in 2015 is largely dominated by the Americas, especially in the U.S. due to the increasing instances of cardiac diseases among the children. APAC region is poised to exhibit highest growth rate during the forecast period due to the flooding investments in pediatrics by major healthcare players in this region, especially from China and India and Canada. The improved healthcare services and governmental healthcare reforms and increased awareness among people drive the market for pediatric interventional cardiology in the APAC region. This report studies the global pediatric interventional cardiology market over the forecast period of 2013 to 2018. This market is valued at an estimated $894.7 million in 2013 and is poised to grow at a CAGR of 9.0% from 2013 to 2018.
