Congenital Heart Disease – 2019 summary report

Reports | Published: 12 Sep 2019 | Author: HQIP

The National Congenital Heart Disease Audit (NCHDA) aims to examine and improve service delivery for, and outcomes of infants, children, adolescents and adults undergoing interventions for paediatric and congenital heart disease.

For the first time the Congenital Audit has used a risk model to assess outcomes in adults (aged 16 years and older) born with congenital heart disease, namely an adult congenital heart surgery mortality score derived from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons–European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery (STAT) mortality score used in North America and Europe. The report finds that hospitals providing care for children and adults with congenital heart disease have low levels of 30-day mortality. Survival rates remain high, and the analyses show that the observed outcomes continue to be better than those predicted.
