Prevalence of Cognitive Impairment in CHD Survivors: A Pilot Study


Presenter: Carla P. Rodriguez-Monserrate, MD

Did you know that children with congenital heart disease (CHD) commonly have neurodevelopmental and psychosocial impairments? The areas most often affected are memory, attention, behavioral control, and executive function. In adult CHD patients, studies are limited; however, they do suggest similar findings. This puts adults with CHD at increased risk for cognitive impairment and dementia. Yet, no studies have routinely looked at this. This webinar will review an ACHA-funded pilot study of adult CHD patients between 30 and 65 who were coming in for a routine clinic visit. Want to know more about this pilot study? Register for the presentation to learn more about the tool that was used and how the scores compared to population norms.
