In a 10-year period from 1984 to 1994, 50 patients underwent cardiac operations at the Santo Tomas University Hospital Clinical Division (STUP-CD). The most common congenital heart disease encountered was Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) which was noted in 5 out of 10 patients (50%). Acquired heart disease were due to rheumatic heart valvular disease which was seen in all 40 (100%) patients. There was 1 mortality out of 10 patients (10%) operated for congenital heart disease and 5 out of 40 patients (12.5%) operated for acquired heart disease. Morbidity was due to pericarditis in 1 out of 10 patients with (10%) congenital heart disease while 14 (36%) had valvular dysfunction after surgery for acquired heart disease. (Author)
