UAB Marfan Syndrome Outpatient Clinic
The UAB Marfan syndrome clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic between UAB Pediatric Cardiology and UAB Department of Genetics. The clinic was established in 2009 to allow patients to be evaluated by a medical geneticist and a cardiologist in a single clinic. This provides convenience to the patients’ as well as enhanced communication between physicians, which improves patient care. Patients benefit from the expertise of both the cardiologist and geneticist who have experience evaluating individuals and families with Marfan syndrome and other related connective tissue disorders. The clinic provides services such as evaluation, genetic counseling, and management for children and adults with Marfan syndrome and other related disorders. Appointments can be arranged by calling Fallon Brewer (Genetic counselor/Marfan Syndrome Clinic Coordinator) at 205-934-5384. This clinic takes place in the UAB Women and Infants Center (9th floor) and is held on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
Cardiac Intensive Care Unit
Members of the critical care division help lead a team of clinicians comprised of pediatric intensivists, neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists, pediatric nurse practitioners, and 2 pediatric cardiac surgeons that manage neonatal to young adult patients in the busy 7 bed pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (CICU) located within UAB Hospital. This unit admitted over 500 patients last year. The majority of patients are admitted for post-surgical management of congenital heart disease, including complex neonatal lesions such as hypoplastic left heart and transposition of the great arteries. In addition, all other aspects of medical and surgical cardiac disease are managed in this unit, including heart transplantation, arrhythmias, myocarditis, valvular heart disease and severe heart failure that requires extracorporeal support modalities such as a ventricular assist device (Berlin heart) or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).
