Congenital Heart Diseases

Congenital heart disease is a problem with the heart's structure and function that is present at birth. Congenital heart disease (CHD) can describe a number of different problems affecting the heart. It is the most common type of birth defect. Congenital heart disease is one of the most common types of birth defect, affecting up to 9 in every 1,000 babies born in the UK. Congenital heart disease is caused when something disrupts the normal development of the heart. People with congenital heart defects are more likely to have inflammation of the inner layer of their heart, especially if their heart was repaired or replaced through surgery. More severe heart defects usually require surgery and long-term monitoring of the heart throughout adult life by a congenital heart disease specialist. In some cases, medications may be used to relieve symptoms or stabilize the condition before and/or after surgery.
