COMBORIDITY OF CONGENITAL HEART DISEASES IN CHILDREN
*Sh. I. Navruzova, A. T. Akhmedov and Sh. U. Khikmatova
The authors studied the condition of sick children aged 1 month to 18 years with congenital heart defects with comorbidity. In 77.5% of the examined children, concomitant diseases were diagnosed along with the underlying disease (CHD). The authors argue that frequent acute respiratory infections lead to a decrease in immunity and the formation of foci of chronic infections, the exacerbation of which is one of the reasons for late surgical correction, resulting in a high risk of postoperative complications, mortality and a decrease in the quality of life of patients with CHD. The natural comorbid course of CHD reduces the effectiveness of conservative treatment of heart failure.
Keywords: Comorbidity, congenital heart defects, immunity.
