Abstract

The parents of 151 children operated on for congenital heart disease have answered some questions about the scholastic, extrascholastic and physical activity of their children. Approximately 94% of the children are at the correct school level for their age. Extrascholastic activities of the city children is the same as children living in the country. During their free time 22% of the child population engages in physical activity, whereas 78% of the child population engages in physical activity at school. Among the parents, 61% think the activity of their children is normal, and 27% think it is too active. Our results demonstrate that the children operated on for congenital heart disease have a normal life during scholastic and free time, whereas, the introduction of these children to sport activities is anomalous and insufficient.
