Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Krasuski As a fellowship trained adult congenital heart disease specialist and Director of the Adult Congenital Heart Center at Duke I take care of a wide spectrum of heart problems spanning from simple shunt lesions like patent foramen ovale atrial septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus to more complicated disorders like tetralogy of Fallot Ebstein anomaly transposition of the great arteries and single ventricles. I collaborate with my colleagues in adult and pediatric medicine to provide comprehensive health services including complex cardiac interventions like catheter-based pulmonary valve implantation closure of aortopulmonary collaterals and coarctation stenting. I am also skilled at the non-invasive and invasive assessment of patients with pulmonary hypertension. Congenital heart disease is my passion and I strive to educate my patients their doctors and our fabulous trainees in order to improve everyone's awareness of these challenging conditions. My spare time is spent mostly at home with my wife and 2 teenage boys. I enjoy participating in and watching all types of major sports and also enjoy traveling.
