Podcast Summary

Many adults are going about their daily lives unaware that they are suffering from a congenital heart defect. There are more than 750,000 adults living with a congenital heart defect in the United States. This could be because many adults with congenital heart disease may not be getting proper follow-up care after correctional surgery they had when they were a child, or they were misdiagnosed when they were younger because they never showed any symptoms.

Podcast Summary

Congenital heart defects are conditions present at birth that affect how a baby's heart is made and the way it works.

They are the most common type of birth defects.

In the United States, about 40,000 infants are born with a heart defect each year.

The Pediatric Heart Center at Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach provides total prenatal, infant, pediatric and young adult heart care for patients with congenital or acquired heart disease or who have a family history of heart problems.
