Exercise Concerns

Recommendations for exercise should be determined in consultation with your cardiologist. If right heart function is impaired or respiratory difficulty is moderate to severe, then treatment should be obtained before pursuing unrestricted physical activity or engaging in contact sports. Regular testing is necessary.

In cases where pulmonary artery dilatation is extreme, safe levels of physical exertion - especially involving contact sports - should be determined through consultation with a cardiologist.

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