Incidence of Cancer in Adult patients with Congenital Heart Disease

Incidence of Cancer in Adult patients with Congenital Heart Disease

Adults with congenital heart disease are exposed to cumulative radiation doses, from multiple catheterization procedures. Seeing as these patients are exposed since early age, the chance of stochastic effect due to radiation exposure are relatively higher than that of the elderly population. It is clear the chance of incident cancer in adults with congenital heart disease is higher
