Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of birth defect. CHD refers to a problem with the heart’s structure that occurred because of abnormal development in the heart before birth. CHD consists of 2 categories: Cyanotic CHD and Acyanotic CHD. CHD is a risk factor for emboli development which can contribute to cerebrovascular accidents.

occurrence risk factors
Occurrence & Risk Factors
  • Most cases of CHD occur in isolation
  • CHD can be associated with various genetic disorders such as Down Syndrome, Marfan Syndrome, Turner Syndrome and Trisomy 13
  • Risk factors:
    • Associated with maternal intake of retonic acid (for acne), alcohol, chemical exposureand rubella
acyanotic chd
Acyanotic CHD
  • Presentation
    • Pink in coloring
    • Normal oxygenation saturation
    • Involves left-to-right shunting so that oxygen rich blood is shunted to the lungs unnecessarily
    • Defects associated with acyanotic CHD
      • Atrialseptal defect
      • Ventricular septal defect
      • Patent ductusarteriosus
      • Aortic coarctation
      • Pulmonary stenosis
      • Aortic stenosis
cyanotic chd
Cyanotic CHD
  • Presentation
    • Cyanosis (blue) in coloring
    • Oxygen saturation is 15 to 30% below normal
    • Involves right-to-left shunting so that unoxygenated blood is shunted to the body
    • Defects associated with CCHD
      • Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF)
      • Transposition of the Great Artery
      • Tricuspid Atresia
      • Pulmonary atresia
      • TruncusArteriosus
      • Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return
      • Hypoplastic Left-Sided Heart Syndrome
hemiparesis and chd
Hemiparesis and CHD
  • In study of children with brain abscesses, one pre-disposing factor was unoperated CCHD. This group of children with CCHD tended to have more significant cerebral complications (mid-line shift and cerebral edema) following drainage of the abscess. Other complications included hemiparesis and seizures for this group.
cerebrovascular accidents and chd
Cerebrovascular Accidents and CHD
  • 1/5 to 1/3 of ischemic childhood strokes can be attributed to underlying congenital heart defects
  • Due to paradoxical cerebral emoblism: emboli from the systemic venous circulation passes to arterial circulation from large septal defects, single ventricle, total anomalous pulmonary venous return, truncusarteriosus
    • Single ventricle physiology with right-to-left shunting is especially vulnerable to systemic emboli
