American Heart Association says Survivors of Childhood Heart Defects may have higher risk of Premature Dementia

 

Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – People born with heart defects who survive into adulthood may be at higher risk of developing dementia, particularly dementia that starts before 65 years of age, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

With improved newborn and childhood treatments, more people born with heart defects survive into adulthood. A 2016 study published in Circulation estimated that approximately 1.4 million adults are living with congenital heart defects in the United States.

Children born with heart defects are more likely to survive into old age because of improved early treatments, but they may be more likely to develop early-onset dementia than people born without heart defects. (American Heart Association)

TeachersClarksville, TN – Educators have been under the gun for the perceived lack of progress children are making in school.
