One million people over the age of 20 suffer from congenital heart disease in the United States. These adult patients can slip through the cracks of our medical system; many are too old to be cared for in most pediatric institutions by pediatric cardiologists and, unfortunately, most adult cardiologists are not trained in congenital heart disease. Therefore, it is important to identify the common lesions in adult congenital heart disease and how they should be managed. Acyanotic congenital heart disease in the adult population primarily involves left-to-right shunts, such as atrial septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, and obstructive lesions such as aortic coarctation of the aorta.

In the United States, there are now more people over the age of 20 with congenital heart disease CHD than under that age. Survival to adulthood is better because of improved fetal diagnoses, advances in neonatal intensive care, improved surgical techniques, early complete surgical repair, lower perioperative mortality, and increased midterm and late survival. The most common defects seen in adult patients are atrial septal defects, aortic stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, pulmonary stenosis, Ebstein anomaly, tetralogy of Fallot, and corrected transposition.
