In congenital heart disease (CHD), a person is born with a defect of the heart caused by a development abnormality of one or more structures of the heart or its blood vessels. These can include narrowed or leaky heart valves, inefficient flow between the heart’s chambers, abnormal connection or chambers/arteries, and other abnormalities. In some cases, these defects do not produce symptoms until adulthood. Major advances in surgical and non-surgical techniques have allowed CHD patients to live longer than ever before.
