Heart birth defects can often stunt growth. Children will often develop later and more slowly. Developmental milestones, such as walking and talking, may be delayed. Children with heart birth defects may need surgery, lifelong medications, or at the very least an awareness of their heart defect to avoid future complications down the line.

What is diuretic resistance?
Discovery Health answered
Diuretic resistance is a term used to describe a condition that some heart failure patients exhibit. The condition occurs when not enough excess fluid is flushed out by the diuretic drugs. It occurs more often in patients with moderate or severe heart failure.
What is a leaky pulmonary valve?
A properly functioning pulmonary valve does not leak much, and it keeps the blood flowing in one direction - from the heart’s lower right pumping chamber (the right ventricle) into the major vessel (pulmonary artery) that connects to the lungs. Defects in the valve, or previous surgical repairs, may cause the valve to leak blood back into the right ventricle.
