About this app

Congenital heart defects can be difficult to visualize and explain. Heartpedia, created by Cincinnati Children's Hospital, allows you to interact with 3D models of pediatric heart anomalies and defects. Healthcare providers may use these anatomically-correct models as visual learning tools to help educate patients and families on specific defects and repairs. Heartpedia may also be helpful to patients and families who want to learn more on their own or to share the details of a defect with concerned friends and family. Cincinnati Children’s believes that supplying the right information and tools ultimately results in the highest level of care and the best outcomes.


Explore what a normal, defective and repaired heart looks like for these anomalies and defects:

• Tetralogy of Fallot
• Coarctation of the Aorta
• Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
• Transposition of the Great Arteries
• Ventricular Septal Defect
• Patent Ductus Arteriosus
• Atrioventricular Septal Defect

Discover each defect through the following interactions:

• Toggle between normal, defect and repair views
• View exterior and various interior heart planes / slices
• Pan, rotate and zoom
• Watch video animation with audio description of each defect and repair
• See labels of key heart structures
• Read a detailed description of the defect


As one of the top three pediatric hospitals in the United States, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is dedicated to improving child health locally, nationally and internationally. We relentlessly focus on improving outcomes, enhancing patient and family experience, and providing the best value for every visitor.

Heartpedia was developed by Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute in collaboration with the Cincinnati Children’s Critical Care Media Lab. The Heart Institute is a worldwide leader in clinical cardiology care and research. We are transforming pediatric cardiac care with a first-of-its-kind bridge between research and clinical care. Our family resources and services are designed to ease the stress of hospital stays, clearly explain procedures, and provide comfort and hope in the face of a life-altering diagnosis.

It's a cool app but support for it has disappeared and is never updated. Wish they added more heart defects before stopping entirely. Still a cool app though.

Love this app. I was born with a heart condition and this app is really helpful... I really hope other defects will be added to this app.

Not getting descriptions in the description tab for each defect. The other tabs and graphics work great!
