From the Committee
Dear Members of the ACHD community,
In this unusual year in which many scientific conferences have been cancelled or switched from face-to-face meetings to virtual meetings due to the coronavirus pandemic, we are very pleased to announce that the Working Group on Adult Congenital Heart Disease is planning to organise the virtual edition of the 12th Annual Congress, EUROGUCH 2021.
The meeting will cover the different stages and issues patients born with congenital heart disease face as they survive to adulthood.
Initially, the challenges of the organisation of healthcare and diagnostic approach evolved to incorporate the most modern non-invasive diagnostic tools.
Later, our adolescents and young adults, and with them, their physicians, faced the risk of arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death and thereupon re-interventions and its indications.
And finally, as ACHD population ages, the management of co-morbidities and heart failure or advance care planning has to be an integral part of the comprehensive care for adults with congenital heart disease.
