Understand Adult Congenital Heart Disease
Children who are born with congenital heart problems grow up to be adults with heart issues. Growing up doesn’t simply mean that you “outgrow” heart issues. Due to continuing improvements in heart surgery and medical treatments, there are now more adults living with the heart conditions they were born with than children living with congenital heart disease. The transition from being a child to an adult with congenital heart disease can be complicated, but it is essential to continue effective and comprehensive heart care throughout life.
