Predictive factor for the survival of infants with congenital heart disease (CHD)

Ads

A study shows the long-term survival chance of the newborn with congenital heart disease (CHD) can be predicted with the birth weight. A congenital heart disease is also known as a congenital heart anomaly or a congenital heart defect. The study shows the best chance for survival for five years will be for the post-term and with the most body weight. The study shows that a poorer chance of survival for the low weight (or lightweight, lighter) and preterm (also early term or early birth) babies. The authors say a baby with the congenital heart disease (CHD) require complex life-saving surgeries and a lifetime follow up.

Post-term birth weight is a predictive factor for the survival of infants with congenital heart disease (CHD).

Researchers analyzed data of 5,070 babies born between 1985 and 2003 from the Northern Congenital Abnormality Survey (NorCAS) registry, which records the congenital disorders (birth defects) in infants born to the residents of the North of England. The analytical study results show.


Survival up to age Survival Chances %
Up to age 5 years 87.1%
Up to age 10 years 86.7%
Up to age 20 years 85.2%

The study also found the following.

  • The percentage of the born babies at term (born between 37 and 42 weeks of pregnancy) with an isolated congenital heart disease (CHD) and with an average birth weight was 53.7 percent.
  • The highest 5-year survival rate of 97.7 percent in post-term babies with the highest birth weight.
  • The lowest 5-year survival rate of 78.8 percent in preterm babies with the lowest birth weight.

They also found that the survival rate increases as the babies grow. A decrease in the risk of death (mortality) by seven percent with a year of increase in the age. Researchers think that the reason for the decrease in the mortality was due to the new surgical innovations such as Fontan procedure, arterial switch operation and advancements in neonatal (newborn children) care.

Lead author of the study was Dr. Kate E. Best, Ph.D., from the Institute of Health & Society, Newcastle University the United Kingdom. The study was published on July 21, 2017, in the Journal of the American Heart Association. Title of the article was "Survival, by Birth Weight and Gestational Age, in Individuals With Congenital Heart Disease: A Population-Based Study."
