Arrhythmias in Congenital Heart Disease

Arrhythmia can be life-threatening to patients with Congenital Heart Disease. Arrhythmias that may not be harmful to healthy people, but they can pose serious threats to people with CHD.

Supraventricular arrhythmia is the most frequent problem, with a lower incidence of ventricular arrhythmia.

Antiarrhythmic drugs haven’t proved to be effective in people with CHD. Therefore, the most common treatment for the arrhythmia is either catheter ablation or device implantation.
