Rehabilitation of Adolescents and Young Adults With Congenital Heart Diseases


Brief description of study

The investigators aim to measure the impact of a rehabilitation program in congenital cardiology in terms of health related quality of life. The orginality of the rehabilitation program consists in its design : initial hospitalizationfor a short period of time (5 days) at the rehabilitation center, followed by 11 weeks of rehabilitation at home under the supervision of a specialized sports trainer.

Detailed Study Description

Adolescents and adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) have reduced exercise capacity compared to the general population, even for "simple" heart disease.

Regular physical activity is known to reduce the risk of acquired heart disease.

Cardiac rehabilitation programs have been largely developed to manage adult coronary and heart failure patients, which is not yet the case routinely in patients, adults and children, carriers of DC.

The investigators assume that patients who participate in this program will improve their quality of life compared to controls.

The orginality of the rehabilitation program consists in its design : initial hospitalizationfor a short period of time (5 days) at the rehabilitation center, followed by 11 weeks of rehabilitation at home under the supervision of a specialized sports trainer .
