Mayo Clinic Radio: Congenital heart defects
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.
