Yes: Both short term and long term outcomes depend on the exact type of congenital heart disease. The great majority of children with congenital heart disease will go on to live a normal or near normal life, even if they require open heart surgery. Almost every child born with congenital heart disease was options for successful care. Best care is delivered at congenital heart centers.
