Congenital heart disease CHD represents a broad spectrum of conditions, from simple defects with an excellent prognosis, to the complex and severe, which require multiple procedures and have uncertain long-term outcomes. As outcomes in cardiac surgery have improved, research has tended to focus on more complex cardiac lesions, rather than mild defects where results were already excellent 1. In the case of many simple forms of CHD, survival has been said to be normal 3 and guidelines do not even recommend cardiology follow-up 45.
