Abstract

Objective: To investigate the correlation between infants diagnosed with congenital heart disease and dysphagia.

Methods: Hospitalized in Intensive and Intermediate Care Units from 2017 to 2020, infants up to 60 days of life diagnosed with congenital heart disease and full-term controls were compared for dysphagia.

Results: Sixteen patients and forty-eight controls were included. Comparing them, the group of patients with heart disease showed correlation for dysphagia.

Conclusion: Infants diagnosed with congenital heart disease have a greater tendency to present dysphagia.
