Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of death and hospitalisation in infants, affecting one in 100 births. The potential for a genetic link to the condition is now being explored in a new Australian Genomics study supported by HeartKids.So far advanced genetic testing could potentially identify the cause of conditions in up to 50% of families, helping to improve diagnosis, provide better treatment and management outcomes as well as early diagnosis of CHD. 200 families affected by CHD are urged to participate in the study to help researchers.Visit Heartkids for more information!
