The positives are that we have come through the experience and I have a very tough, caring lovely child who plays football, attends gymnastics, does tae kwon do, swims unaided and participates in athletic activities. (2008) has developed competencies and standards for aspects of the newborn infant physical examination and pathways of referral including CHD. Healthcare professionals and parents need to understand that the initial, daily or routine examination cannot identify all abnormalities that present in the neonatal period as many may only present at a later date.

However, the outcome in this group is significantly improved if the rhythm is controlled prior to delivery. Fetal intervention Fetal cardiac intervention for structural heart disease was first reported by Maxwell et al (1991), who reported the results of a fetal aortic balloon valvuloplasty. Before this, in 1986, Carpenter et al (1986) had attempted to pace a fetus with complete heart block associated with non-immune fetal hydrops. However, although these early reports and others subsequently have shown that fetal cardiac intervention is possible, the benefits of such procedures are still under evaluation and the role for fetal intervention remains to be fully established.

This is partly explained by poor case selection and the fact that most centres, with a few exceptions, have reported an experience of only a small number of cases (Matsui & Gardiner, 2007). In 2006, guidelines for fetal intervention were produced by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence in the UK (2006a), which recommended a multicentre approach to define criteria for patient selection and to evaluate the effectiveness of prenatal cardiac intervention. It is likely that improved patient selection and technical modifications in interventional 32 ᭿ Cardiothoracic care for children and young people methods will improve outcome in the future.
