Congenital Heart Disease

Overview
  • Congenital Heart Diseases represent the most common type of congenital defects and occur in nearly 1% of all newborns. Defects result in a wide range of hemodynamic consequences and can manifest immediately after birth or not become apparent until adulthood. An understanding of heart development and the fetal circulation would surely aid in learning of the various possible congenital heart diseases; however, a comprehensive discussion of cardiac development is currently beyond the scope of this work.
