Part of the defect. With Down syndrome, every tissue cell in the body have too much chromosome information in every cell. The extra information confuses the creation of complex body parts, and for DS patients the brain, heart, intestines,hands.feet and facial structures all have variable changes related to the defect.

Could you suggest treatment for congenital heart disease with atrial septial defect for a man aged 39?

Depending on size. Treatment of (ASD) is dependent on its size, whether there is significant flow across it, and the location within the atrial septum. If it's a significant defect then treatment is either surgical with open heart surgery, or transcatheter device closure if the defect meets the required criteria. If it's a small defect with no right heart chamber dilatation then typically no treatment is needed. Read more...

My two year old was born w/ congenital heart disease. He's been rolling his eyes back abnormally at random. Like its uncontrollable. Is this normal!?

Unrelated. I can think of no process that puts the two issues together. CHD is a rather common birth condition and includes a number of abnormalities. The eye rolling suggests something involving the brains control of the eye muscles, a totally separate part of the body. You need to see the kids doc and have them sort this out. Read more...
See your doctor. Eye rolling could be a form of seizure. Probably unrelated to the heart, but it needs to be evaluated. If possible, try to get an episode of the eye rolling on video so the doctor can see what is going on. Read more...

Does stem cell research help with congenital heart disease?

Amazing Potential. We are a ways off from treating chd with stem cells, but i know of research that is ongoing to improve heart function after surgery using cardiac stem cells. I believe that we will also see stem cells used to modulate immune response in transplant patients (some chd patients go on to transplantation). These technologies that I have mentioned use stem cells that are not derived from embryos. Read more...
Maybe. There are a lot of possibilities. Stem cells are used to repair damaged hearts in adults in experimental protocols. There is also work being done trying to treat heart valve valves with stem cells so they are not broken down after a few years (see 60 minutes.Com, growing body parts about 3 years ago). Maybe even growing a new heart is possible; it been done in rats. Read more...

How can a congenital heart disease cause congestive heart failure?

Flow demands. The fetal heart is required to do about half the work of living outside. Blood from the body is pumped through the heart back to the body & placenta without going through the lungs. Mom also does the work of providing nutrients, removing waste & keeping temperature stable. After birth, the heart must pump thru the lungs & do more work. The additional load can lead the heart to fail. Read more...
