David Franco was born with congenitally-corrected transposition of the great arteries and a ventricular septal defect (or VSD). David is 49 years old and has had several cardiac and several other, non-cardiac surgeries. In this episode of "Heart to Heart with Anna" David will share with us what he has learned from having non-cardiac surgeries. He will inform us what he knows adults with congenital heart defects (CHDs) need to be aware of and what kinds of questions to ask. He will also share with us what some of his concerns have been in the past and what complications he's experienced. Best of all, David will give advice about what others with CHDs need to consider when they know they will need non-cardiac surgery.
