Aortopulmonary Connection Exercise Concerns

People who underwent repair of isolated aortopulmonary window during childhood may expect normal life expectancy and no restrictions in their activities. Safe levels of activity for patients who received treatment later in life will depend on whether pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary vascular obstructive disease (PVOD), or Eisenmenger Complex are present. Safe levels of exercise should be determined by consultation with your cardiologist.

Anyone with congenital heart disease, repaired or non-repaired, should consult with their cardiologist about physical activity to review the risks.
