Abstract :

Background: More than 90% of the children born with a heart defect now reached adulthood. Even after successful treatment, many patients are prone to residua and sequelae, and complicate the well-being of these patients, for which lifelong specialized care is required. Lapse of care is associated with adverse outcome and significant increased morbidity. Purposes: To determine the proportion and predictive factors of transiently lost to follow-up among patients with congenital heart disease. Methods: A population-based prospective cohort study was used. Results: During 2006-2011, overall, 153 of the 1478 patients included (10.4%) were transiently failed to follow-up. Multivariable logistic regression revealed that age 7-12 (OR=1.850, 95% CI=1.028-3.329), 13-18 (OR=2.450, 95% CI=1.172-5.120), 19-24 (OR=6.021, 95% CI=2.356-15.390), ├ó┬?┬ą41 (OR=0.324, 95% CI=0.128-0.821), Catastrophic Illness (OR=5.217, 95% CI=3.313-8.251), ├ó┬?┬ą2 diagnoses for congenital heart disease (OR=1.726, 95% CI=1.083-2.749), moderate of congenital heart disease (OR= 5.907, 95% CI=3.873-9.010) and severe of congenital heart disease (OR=5.208 , 95% CI=2.538-10.686) were associated with transiently fail to follow-up. Conclusion: Transiently lost to follow-up begins during childhood, especially in adolescence to early adulthood, a time when transition to adult service. Transiently lost to follow-up was more common among subjects with moderate and sever diagnoses. The findings will provide as important references for clinical practice, and a scientific knowledge base for relevance intervention develop.
