Percutaneous Treatment for Adult Congenital Heart Disease
Congenital heart disease is an abnormality in the heart structure (involving the heart chambers, heart valves or major blood vessels), that is present at birth. It was often fatal, but it\'s far more treatable today.
Although congenital heart disease is often considered a childhood condition, advances in surgical treatment mean most babies who once died of congenital heart disease survive well into adulthood.
The diagnosis and successful management of congenital heart disease is one of the major triumphs of medicine and cardiovascular surgery in the 20th century. However adults with congenital heart disease need to receive proper follow-up care.
Most congenital heart diseases can be repaired or improved with surgery. Some congenital heart diseases require no treatment. Many people who have congenital heart disease live full and healthy lives.
