The Children's Hospital of Michigan offers treatment for congenital heart diseases. These diseases, which are present at birth, can cause symptoms in the first few months of life, during childhood, or in adulthood. Signs and symptoms like cyanosis and heart murmurs are commonly associated with congenital diseases. Cyanosis is the bluish discoloration of nails, skin, and mucous membranes.
Many adults first learn about their congenital heart disease when they develop life-threatening complications. For example, ventricular septal defect (VSD), the most common congenital heart disease, typically causes breathlessness, blood-stained sputum, heart failure, or cyanosis - when any of these symptoms appear it is an emergency. Treatment of congenital heart disease often focuses on managing the symptoms of the disease and preventing serious complications.
