Congenital heart defects are structural problems with the heart that are present at birth and may require surgery. While it can be scary to find out your child has a heart problem, you are not alone. Congenital heart defects are the most common type of birth defects, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year, more than 35,000 babies in the U.S. are born with a congenital heart defect. The good news is, as medical care and treatment options continue to advance, babies born with heart defects are now living longer and healthier lives.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Joseph Dearani, chair of Cardiovascular Surgery at Mayo Clinic, will discuss diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects. Also on the program, Dr. Tatnai Burnett, a gynecologist at Mayo Clinic, will discuss endometriosis. And Dr. Jonathan Fillmore, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will explain treatment for temporomandibular joint disorders.
