Heart disease in children affects thousands of American families each year.
Approximately 1 percent of infants are born with a congenital heart defect, such as atrioventricular septal defects, coarctation of the aorta and ventricular septal defects. Many other children will develop acquired heart disease after birth, which includes arrhythmias, cardiomypathis and Kawasaki disease to name a few.
Cardiac issues in children can be life threatening without the proper diagnostic care and treatment and are a cause for concern for many parents and future parents.
