The Surprisingly Common World of Congenital Heart Defect [INFOGRAPHIC] . somewhat good but also saw that it had some mistakes (like not suggested atrial septal defects can require open surgery based on size)
#CHDawareness The success rate for fetal heart surgery to prevent #HLHS is 75%. The fetus is about the size of a grape; heart the size of a peanut; the surgical tool the size of a human hair. More research on fetal development is needed before this surgery can be used regularly. http://www.childrensheartfoundation.org/forms/ResearchDonation.html #HeartMonth #CHD #CongenitalHeartDefect #heart
#CHDawareness surgery in the womb to prevent #HLHS was first tried in 1975 but still not widely used. If perfected, this surgery would be used an average of once a week per hospital. More research on fetal development is needed. http://www.childrensheartfoundation.org/forms/ResearchDonation.html #HeartMonth #CHD #CongenitalHeartDefect #heart
