Abstract

The past couple of decades have been a very exciting time for providers taking care of patients with congenital heart disease. We have made tremendous progress in almost all aspects and facets, ranging from early detection, better understanding of the basis of such defects, single ventricle palliation, cardiopulmonary bypass and heart transplantation. This has led to better survival and such survivors reaching adulthood, giving rise to a new and exploding field of adult congenital heart disease!
