Review Article

ABSTRACT Medical and surgical advances are prolonging the lives of children with congenital heart disease (CHD), who are now living into adulthood. Physician assistants are well-positioned to play an integral role in supporting the transition of patients with CHD from pediatric to adult medical care, thereby reducing patients' risk of adverse outcomes.

Kaitlyn Kasinskas is a recent graduate of the Quinnipiac University PA program in Hamden, Conn. Dawn Colomb-Lippa is a professor in the PA program at Quinnipiac University. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
