  • CONCLUSIONS: The correlation between congenital heart disease and increased altitude is noteworthy. This study's results are the first big data epidemiological investigation to confirm that high altitude is a significant environmental risk factor for congenital heart disease, especially patent ductus arteriosus. Furthermore, the results provide additional support to make a diagnostic and treatment plan to prevent congenital heart disease in high altitude areas.
