A congenital coronary heart defect (CHD), additionally recognized as a congenital coronary heart anomaly and congenital coronary heart disease, is a defect in the shape of the coronary heart or brilliant vessels that is existing at birth. Signs and signs rely on the precise kind of defect. Symptoms can fluctuate from none to life-threatening. When present, signs and symptoms can also encompass speedy breathing, bluish pores and skin (cyanosis), terrible weight gain, and feeling tired. CHD does no longer purpose chest pain. Most congenital coronary heart defects are now not related with different diseases. A complication of CHD is coronary heart failure.
The reason of a congenital coronary heart defect is regularly unknown. Risk elements consist of positive infections throughout pregnancy such as rubella, use of positive medicines or tablets such as alcohol or tobacco, dad and mom being intently related, or bad dietary repute or weight problems in the mother. Having a dad or mum with a congenital coronary heart defect is additionally a chance factor. A range of genetic prerequisites are related with coronary heart defects, such as Down syndrome, Turner syndrome, and Marfan syndrome.
Congenital coronary heart defects are divided into two most important groups: cyanotic coronary heart defects and non-cyanotic coronary heart defects, relying on whether or not the toddler has the practicable to flip bluish in color. The defects may also contain the indoors partitions of the heart, the coronary heart valves, or the massive blood vessels that lead to and from the heart.
Congenital coronary heart defects are partly preventable thru rubella vaccination, the including of iodine to salt, and the including of folic acid to positive meals products. Some defects do now not want treatment. Others may also be successfully dealt with catheter based totally approaches or coronary heart surgery. Occasionally a quantity of operations might also be needed, or a coronary heart transplant may also be required with gorgeous treatment, consequences are commonly good, even with complicated problems.
Congenital coronary heart defects are the most frequent start defect. In 2015, they have been existing in 48.9 million humans globally. They have an effect on between four and seventy five per 1,000 stay births, relying upon how they are diagnosed. In about 6 to 19 per 1,000 they reason a reasonable to extreme diploma of problems.

Congenital coronary heart defects reason extraordinary coronary heart shape ensuing in manufacturing of positive sounds referred to as coronary heart murmur. These can once in a while be detected by using auscultation; however, now not all coronary heart murmurs are induced through congenital coronary heart defects.
Congenital coronary heart defects are related with an improved incidence of seven different particular scientific conditions, collectively being known as the VACTERL association:
• V — Vertebral anomalies
• A — Anal atresia
• C — Cardiovascular anomalies
• T — Tracheoesophageal fistula
• E — Esophageal atresia
• R — Renal (Kidney) and/or radial anomalies
• L — Limb defects
Ventricular septal defect (VSD), atrial septal defects, and tetralogy of Fallot are the most frequent congenital coronary heart defects considered in the VACTERL association. Less frequent defects in the affiliation are truncus arteriosus and transposition of the terrific arteries.
