Congenital Heart Disease of Interest in Athletes

  • P. Colonna

Abstract

Congenital heart diseases (CHD) relative to sports medicine can be divided into 2 principal groups:
  1. a)

    “Simple” CHD- generally asymptomatic, in which sports practice is often allowed even before eventual surgical correction.

     
  2. b)

    “Complex” CHD- frequently cyanotic and can allow participation in sports only after surgical correction and only in selected cases.
