Abstract
La cardiología pediátrica y la cirugía cardiovascular han tenido avances importantes en los últimos años; las cardiopatías congénitas (CC) son una de las principales causas de mortalidad en niños. Muchos de los factores que determinan la evolución final de estos pacientes incluyen el tipo de cardiopatía y el tiempo del diagnóstico y tratamiento; infortunadamente, dos de los que presentan mayores efectos son el estado socioeconómico y el área geográfica de atención en México. El objetivo de este estudio es conocer el tipo de atención para los pacientes con CC en hospitales públicos del país.
