          Abstract

          Birth defects and preterm birth (PTB) are leading causes of infant morbidity and mortality in the United States. Infants with birth defects are more likely to be born preterm (<37 weeks), yet the roles of maternal ethnicity and fetal growth in this relationship are unclear. This study aimed to assess the risk of PTB among non-Hispanic (NH) Black, NH-White, and Hispanic infants with congenital heart defects (CHD), adjusting for fetal growth.
