Congenital heart defects (CHDs) affect a large number of newborns and account for a high proportion of infant mortality worldwide. There are regional differences in the prevalence and distribution pattern of CHDs. Out of 34 517 individuals examined, 661 were diagnosed with CHDs, giving a prevalence of 19.14 per 1000 individuals. The most common defect was ventricular septal defect (33%), followed by atrial septal defect (19%) and tetralogy of Fallot (16%). The majority of CHD cases (58%) diagnosed were between 0 and 5 years of age.
