Cardiac Conditions

Select Any That Apply

  • Unrepaired cyanotic congenital heart disease, including those with palliative shunts and conduits
  • Completely repaired congenital heart disease with prosthetic material or device, whether placed by surgery or catheter intervention, during the first 6 months after the procedure⁽*⁾
  • Repaired congenital heart disease with residual defects at the site or adjacent to the site of a prosthetic patch or prosthetic device (which inhibit endothelialization)

Notes

Except for the conditions listed, antibiotic prophylaxis is no longer recommended for any other forms of CHD.

*Prophylaxis is reasonable because endothelialization of prosthetic material occurs within 6 months following the procedure.
