Abstract

In this study we aimed to evaluate serum insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) and growth hormone (GH) levels in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and to determine if these parameters have any relationship to the cyanosis, nutritional status and the left ventricular systolic function.
