Heart defects are among the most common birth defects and are the leading cause of birth-defect-related deaths, according to the American Heart Association. Advances in diagnosis and surgical treatment have led to dramatic increases in survival for children with serious heart defects, which has in turn led to a growing population of adults with congenital heart disease.
