Abstract
Patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease (CCHD) have a high prevalence of thrombosis, the most frequently described locations being the cerebral and pulmonary vessels. The reported prevalence of both cerebral infarction and pulmonary thrombosis has been highly variable. The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of both cerebral and pulmonary thrombosis in CCHD according to medical history and imaging. In addition, the role of known erythrocytosis and haemostatic abnormalities as risk factors was evaluated.
