The population with adult congenital heart disease is expanding. Cardiac care retention and follow-up patterns were assessed in 153 adults with congenital heart disease (median age, 24.5 years), previously compliant as teenagers. The majority (125; 81.7%) were retained in care, most often by a pediatric cardiologist (69%). The rate of retention was surprisingly high.
