Abstract

Pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular surgery have witnessed significant advancements over the last two decades. In spite of this progress, congenital heart disease (CHD) still remains as one of the major causes of death in infants and young children in the United States. Many patient-related and patient-independent factors influence the outcomes in patients with CHD, one of which is the geographical location. In the US–Mexico border, management and outcomes of patients with CHD are further complicated by additional problems stemming from complex interplay between two different health systems, and socioeconomic disparities. In this article, the authors evaluate the various interplaying factors and describe the difficulties facing the practicing pediatric cardiologists in a US–Mexico border city.
