Abstract :

Background: Congenital Heart disease (CHD) is one of the most frequently occurring congenital defects which affect the newborn population. Congenital heart defects are very serious problem in current perinatology. The incidence of moderate to severe structural CHD in live born infants is 6 to 8 per 1000 live birth. Early CHD detection has definite effect on prognosis and the future implications of the disease on the patient and the family. The aim of this work was to determine the incidence and outcome of congenital heart diseases among neonates with respiratory distress in Benha Children Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).Methods: This study was retrospective study which conducted on 1020 registered cases at Benha Children Hospital (BENCH) NICU during period from 2013 to 2015. This study was done in the period from first of October 2016 to March 2017. All subjects were subjected to history, clinical examination and Imaging (Echocardiography).Results: Incidence of congenital heart disease among the studied groups was 47.1%. % of male was significantly higher among CHD patients than those without (70.8%, 59.3% respectively) p =0.000 .% of CS was significantly higher among CHD patients than those without (83.3%, 77.8% respectively) p =0.03 .% of improved outcome was significantly lower among CHD patients than those without (54.2%, 92.6% respectively) p =0.000Conclusion: Incidence of congenital heart disease among the studied groups was 47.1%. % of improved outcome was significantly lower among CHD patients than those without (54.2%, 92.6% respectively) p =0.000
