Abstract With the improvement of congenital heart surgery, most children with congenital heart disease will survive into adulthood with a good quality of life. Regular cardiac follow-up is recommended for all patients. The adolescent period coincides often with medium and long term consequences and complications and repeat surgery or catheter interventions might be needed. It is therefore of prime importance to begin the transition process early and to pursue it well into adulthood. We have elaborated a formal transition program adapted to youngsters with congenital heart disease.
