Abstract: Background Postoperative morbidity is an increasingly important outcome measure of patients who have undergone congenital heart surgery (CHS). We examined late postoperative morbidity after CHS on the basis of patients' government-issued medical special reimbursement rights. Methods and Results Between 1953 and 2009, 10 635 patients underwent CHS at Conclusions Chronic cardiac and noncardiac sequelae are common after CHS regardless of the severity of the defect, underscoring the importance of long-term follow-up of all patients after CHS.
