Abstract

Congenital heart diseases are frequent, but most of them are minor and do not require special pediatric care. In Spain and other developed countries those who need it are corrected soon, limiting the symptom’s period and usually have with few sequelae. For these reasons, the follow up of children with congenital heart diseases suppose little work load for the primary care units. Nevertheless, pediatric care is important for some patients, like those who have more complex defects. The current knowledge about this subject is reviewed in this paper.
