Congenital heart disease

Congenital heart disease refers to any defect of the heart present from birth. It includes structural defects, congenital arrhythmias, and cardiomyopathies. At least eight in every 1,000 babies are born with a heart or circulatory condition and only a quarter of these are detected by ultrasound scans. The audit covers the care of both children and adults with congenital heart disease.

The Congenital heart disease website provides information about each congenital heart disease centre, the procedures/operations undertaken and the rate of survival for patients at each UK centre.
