Abstract

Acyanotic congenital heart diseases or left-to-right shunting lesions are the most common form of congenital heart disease. Although most resolve spontaneously, many will remain hemodynamically significant, particularly in the premature infant. Understanding the difference in pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management between the term and preterm infant is imperative to minimize the risk of secondary organ dysfunction and ensure proper growth and development.
