Heart Defects in Children
One of the biggest thrills of parenting is learning that your child has a big heart. But one of the biggest terrors is learning your child has a defective heart. Special guest Dr. Gregory Fontana is one of the leading pediatric heart surgeons in the country. He joins The Doctors onstage and shares what every parent needs to know about children’s heart problems. Nearly one in 100 babies are born with a heart defect, and 25 to 30 percent of congenital defects are heart defects. One of the most common reasons for miscarriage is due to a heart defect. Find out what you can do during pregnancy to detect any problems -- in a heartbeat.
