Congenital heart disease is a kind of heart disease in the new born babies which includes congenital heart defects, congenital arrhythmias, and cardiomyopathies. Congenital heart disease is a defect of heart diseases which exists primarily at the birth of the baby. Congenital heart disease can state a wide variety of different abnormalities affecting the heart.

Usually a coronary heart disease occurs when the heart or blood vessels near the heart does not develop properly before birth. Thus the heart does not function properly and do not pumps blood properly as it is not completely developed. With such a condition the flow of blood is obstructed in the heart of the vessels nearby, resulting in an abnormal blood flow through the heart. This obstruction of blood flow puts a strain in the heart muscles causing the heart to work harder and beat faster. This abnormal flow of blood generally occurs when there is a duct in the walls of the heart and may be an abnormal link amid the two arteries outside the heart.
