The normal heart, defects, heart murmurs, kawasaki disease, treatment, school programs and feeding an infant with congenital heart disease. Information provided by the American Heart Association.
The two types of heart disease in children are "congenital" and "acquired." Congenital heart disease (also known as a congenital heart defect) is present at birth. Some defects in this category are patent ductus arteriosis, atrial septal defects and ventricular septal defects. Acquired heart disease, which develops sometime during childhood, includes diseases such as Kawasaki disease, rheumatic fever and infective endocarditis. Common diagnostic tests for these diseases are explained here.
About 40,000 children are born with a heart defect each year. Most of these children can benefit from surgery even if the defect is severe. When surgery is necessary, many medical treatments are available to help the heart work properly. There is nothing that parents could have done to prevent these defects. Learn about conditions that can interfere with the work of the heart and treatment options in this section. Kawasaki disease is an example of acquired heart disease that occurs primarily in children who are 5 years old or younger. Although medical knowledge of the disease is still developing, there are steps you can take to recognize the symptoms and deal with the disease's effects. At least 8 of every 1,000 infants born each year have a heart defect. About 1 million Americans with cardiovascular defects are alive today. Though research is ongoing, at least 35 defects have now been identified.

The causes are difficult to determine and probably different in each case.
  • There is further evidence of a genetic contribution in that parents who have had one child with a congenital heart abnormality have an increased risk of their next children having some sort of congenital heart abnormality as well. The risk is increased from the 1 in a thousand range to 1 in twenty. (Remember, that means a 19 in 20 chance of having a child without the abnormality). The risk may be higher in occasional families with certain forms of congenital disease which are passed down frequently to children.
    Infections in the mother, particularly early in pregnancy, such as rubella ("German measles") are associated with congenital heart abnormalities in those children.
The therapy of these disorders is sometimes quite complex, and should be discussed with your physician.
The following is a brief atlas of some of the more common congenital heart conditions. The normal flow in the heart can be reviewed from the HeartPoint Gallery page regarding "The Heart"

This publication contains information to help you understand and live a heart-healthy lifestyle. Published for friends of the Texas Heart Institute. Congenital Heart Disease Congenital heart defects are heart problems present at birth. They happen when the heart does not develop normally before birth. About 8 out of every 1,000 infants are born with one or more heart or circulatory problems. Doctors usually do not know the cause of congenital heart defects, but they do know of some conditions that increase a child's risk of being born with a heart defect. They include
  • Congenital heart disease in the baby's mother or father. Congenital heart disease in the baby's brother or sister. Diabetes in the mother. German measles, toxoplasmosis (an infection that is passed through contact with cat feces), or HIV infection in the mother. The mother's use of alcohol during pregnancy.

Successful cardiac surgery in infants and children during the 1960s and 1970s has resulted in a rapidly growing population of adults with congenital heart disease. Some of these patients have cardiac problems which are not typically seen by adult cardiologists. The Joan And Michael Schneeweiss Center for Adult Congenital Heart Disease at New York Presbyterian Hospital was developed to serve the unique needs of this population. Highly specialized care is provided by a team of physicians specifically interested in the problems of adults with congenital heart disease. The Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program is directed by Dr. Marlon S. Rosenbaum, a cardiologist trained in both adult and pediatric heart disease. The Program is a vital resource for patients with both newly diagnosed congenital heart disease and those who had cardiac surgery earlier in life. Diagnostic studies such as echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and cardiac catheterization are performed by physicians knowledgeable about adult congenital heart disease. Our cardiac MRI facility has state of the art software which permits rapid acquisition of images and provides highly detailed anatomic information. Cardiopulmonary stress testing is performed by an exercise physiologist with extensive experience in exercise and congenital heart disease. The cardiac surgical program at the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center is led by Dr. Jan Quaegebeur and Dr. Ralph Mosca. Our surgeons have had extensive experience in the repair of many different forms of congenital heart disease, including D-transposition of the great arteries, single ventricle, Ebstein's anomaly and aortic valve disease using the Ross procedure.

Coping with Congenital Heart Disease in Your Baby
What is congenital heart disease? A congenital heart disease is one that a baby is born with. Did I do something during pregnancy that made my baby have this problem? Probably not. Some things that happen in pregnancy can lead to a congenital heart problem in a baby, but often the reason for the heart disease is not known. Talk with your family doctor if you're worried that you caused your baby's heart problem, but don't blame yourself. I felt depressed when I found out my baby has a heart problem. Is that normal? Yes. Feeling angry, guilty or depressed is normal. Knowing that your baby has a heart problem is stressful. When you first found out about your baby's problem, you may have been in shock.

14. CHASER - Congenital Heart Anomalies, Support, Education, Resources
The organization maintains the national heart parent/child database of families with congenital heart disease. By using information
CHASER specializes in children born with congenital heart defects (CHD), "in utero to adult", and also acquired heart disease in infants and children. The primary purpose of the organization is to offer parents, professionals and patients, resources that may help these individuals in their dealings with financial, educational, medical, emotional and other issues that may concern them. CHASER is in essence working to fill a void which exists for many. CHASER collects information nationwide from a variety of clearinghouses, organizations, professionals, and the family. CHASER itself can be a clearinghouse of information for all. From heart defects to syndromes accompanied by heart disorders - from feeding to surgery and beyond - CHASER strives toward finding and linking the family to the "help". The organization maintains the national 'heart' parent/child database of families with congenital heart disease. By using information furnished by families and professional in various fields, they in turn are able to provide parents the opportunity to connect with others who truly understand their concerns and fears - CHASER's Parent to Parent Networking. They employ some of the most precise "matching" capabilities for CHD families found anywhere. Close similarities in condition and experience are considered a prerequisite to "understanding". While at the same time, "new" parents can find not only understanding, but resources and coping skills as well. Isolation and loneliness can be lessened or alleviated by CHASER's networking. They primarily work on a "One-to-One" basis when locating helpful information or contacts, with each case looked upon as being unique.
