Simple Congenital Heart Disease

Simple CHDs are relatively uncomplicated heart defects that are not associated with other heart conditions. Patients with these conditions may not require treatment in an adult CHD (ACHD) center. These patients can usually be cared for in the general medical community.

Native conditions:

  • Isolated congenital aortic valve disease
  • Isolated congenital mitral valve disease (except parachute valve, cleft leaflet)
  • Isolated patent foramen ovale or small atrial septal defect
  • Isolated small ventricular septal defect (no associated lesions)
  • Mild pulmonic stenosis

Repaired conditions:

  • Previously ligated or occluded ductus arteriosus
  • Repaired secundum or sinus venosus
  • Atrial septal defect without residua
  • Repaired ventricular septal defect without residua
