An increasingly complex group of children is now being followed as outpatients after surgery for congenital heart disease. A variety of complications and physiologic perturbations, both expected and unexpected, may present during follow-up, and should be anticipated by the practitioner and discussed with the patient and family. The purpose of this position article is to provide a framework for outpatient follow-up of complex congenital heart disease, based on a review of current literature and the experience of the authors.
