Abstract

As we enter the next millennium, we are encouraged by the progress that has been made in the care of neonates, infants, and children with heart disease. Surgical repair can be offered at an earlier age with excellent results. Diseases that were uniformly fatal in the past have improved outcomes. Research continues in the area of interventional devices such that surgical repair might be eliminated or delayed. We continue to look forward to advances in the next several years that will allow for future improvement in outcome, better quality-of-life and better long-term results.
