Congenital Heart Disease – Septal Defects

Congenital heart disease is a defect in the heart that a baby is born with. The defect may be in the structure of the heart and affect the way blood flows or there may be problems with heart rhythm. Today sophisticated surgery can correct many congenital heart diseases, but it remains one of the leading causes of birth defect-related deaths in babies.
