Babies with cyanotic heart disease need surgery to survive. Still, mortality is high. About 75% of babies with CCHD survive one year, and about 69% survive 18 years.

Because of low oxygen and congenital heart defects, children with CCHD are at risk for:

  • Developmental delays.
  • Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm).
  • Heart failure.
  • Sudden cardiac arrest.
  • Stroke.
