The problem is caused by abnormal formation of the heart structure when the baby is in the womb.
There are a variety of congenital heart conditions. They can be due to wrong connections of major blood vessels coming out of the heart, abnormal openings between different parts of the heart (shunts), or blockage of normal blood pathways (stenosis).
If diagnosis was known before birth, baby will be examined and attended to at birth by our doctors, and referred to the paediatric cardiologist after stabilization.
If surgery is required, the baby will be cared for in the Paediatric Intensive Care or Neonatal Intensive Care facility after the heart operation.
