In brief: Too many to list!

Congenital heart disease simply means a structural heart problem that was present at birth.
There is an almost infinite number of combinations of abnormalities that can be found at birth. There are general classes of congenital heart disease, such as those that make you turn blue vs those that don't , but the list is incredibly long.

In brief: Dozens!

There are dozens of different, unique congenital heart diseases (defects).
The most common congenital heart defects are ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, and bicuspid aortic valve. Bicuspid aortic valve is often undiagnosed until adulthood.
