Abstract

The prevention of neural tube defects with periconceptional folic acid or folic acid-containing multivitamin supplementation is accepted by the scientific community; here the possible prevention of cardiovascular malformations is discussed. The aim of this presentation is to show the main findings of trials and studies that resulted in the prevention of neural tube defects and particularly cardiovascular malformations by folic acid-containing multivitamins or folic acid supplementation in order to stimulate the incorporation of folic acid-containing multivitamins or folic acid in the prevention of cardiovascular malformations.
