THURSDAY, Feb. 11, 2021 (HealthDay News) — Adults with congenital heart defects (CHDs) are more likely to report cardiovascular comorbidities than those in the general population, according to research published in the Feb. 12 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention发病率和死亡率每周报告

Using data from 1,482 respondents in the 2016 to 2019 Congenital Heart Survey to Recognize Outcomes, Needs, and Well-Being, Matthew E. Oster, M.D., from the CDC in Atlanta, and colleagues estimated the prevalence of comorbidities among adults with CHDs aged 20 to 38 years born in Arizona, Arkansas, and metropolitan Atlanta compared with the general population.
