Congenital heart disease in infants and children often challenges healthcare providers both in regards to diagnosis and in the management of these conditions. The field becomes more complicated as one examines the myriad of defects that present and the complex care that is required. Over the last 20-25 years, the remarkable advances in the medical and surgical management of the most complex lesions have decreased neonatal mortality, such that many more survive the neonatal period. Therefore, new challenges regarding the continued care of this patient cohort of high-risk infants and children exist. In order to continue the improvement of treatment(s) offered to these patients, continuous review and analysis of the current standard of care is needed.
In this study, the investigators will collect information related to the current surgical and medical therapies offered to patients enrolled in the High Risk Congenital Heart Program at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. All of the procedure and visit information will be a part of the child's standard of care. This information will be placed in a database. The investigators hope to learn more about the short-term and long-term effects of current therapies and procedures.
