Did you know that?

Congenital heart defects (CHD) are problems present at birth that affect the structure or function of the heart.  They can affect how blood flows through the heart and out to the rest of the body.  There are many types of heart defects, with different degrees of severity based on size, location and other defects.  Common examples include holes in different areas of the heart and narrow or leaky valves.  In more severe forms of CHDs, blood vessels or heart chambers may be missing, poorly formed or in the wrong place

CHD are the most common birth defect. About 1 out of every 100 children in the United States are born with a congenital heart defect. That’s 40,000 children each year.  There are approximately 560 babies that are born with a heart defect in South Carolina every year.

Most causes of CHD are unknown. Only 15-20% are related to known genetic conditions. 25% have critical CHD and required surgery or a catheter-based procedure in the first year of life.  With our advances in diagnosis, care its estimated that 2-3 million people are living in the US with CHD.
