Overview

Congenital heart defects should undergo surgical repair before progression to Eisenmenger's syndrome. Once the condition develops into Eisenmenger's syndrome, no surgical cure is available except for heart and lung transplantation. However, palliative interventions (as creation of an artificial ASD) may prolong the lifespan and improve the quality of life.
