In brief: CHD

Congenital heart defects (chd) come in varied forms.
Some are common (asd and vsd) and others are very rare (criss cros heart). Some are extremely critical (tapvr) while others may not even be known of (ASD) so structure of heart is different in each. Function also varies. See your pediatric cardiologist for further info on congenital heart defects.
