Comparative analysis of the success rate, complications and serum inflammatory factors in patients with congenital heart disease treated by interventional therapy and traditional surgical treatment

Objective: To compare the success rate, complications and serum inflammatory factors in patients with congenital heart disease treated by interventional therapy and traditional surgical treatment.

Methods: A total of 80 patients with congenital heart disease from May 2016 to May 2017 in our hospital were divided by random number table into control group (traditional surgical treatment) and study group (interventional therapy) with 40 patients in each, with the approval of hospital ethics committee and informed consent of patients and their families. The success rate, incidence of complications and the changes of levels of serum inflammatory factors were observed and compared between the two groups.

Results: In the study group, the success rate was 100%, the incidence of complications was 7.5%, while in the control group 97.5% and 15% correspondingly, with no significant difference between the groups. The levels of serum inflammatory factors had no significant difference between the two groups before treatment, but the levels were significantly lower in the study group than in the control group after treatment.

Conclusion: Interventional therapy for congenital heart disease is superior to traditional surgery in terms of success rate, incidence of complication and serum inflammatory factor level, which should be used as the preferred treatment scheme.
