Editorial - April 2021

Dear members of the Working Group on Adult Congenital Heart Disease,

We are expecting with great enthusiasm the upcoming EuroGUCH 2021. Due to the SARS-Cov2 pandemic, this time we will not be able to meet in the beautiful city of Seville. As the rest of the current ESC congresses, the meeting will be held online, but this will give another dimension to our event.

This year, the programme will be organised into sessions, moving through the different stages and issues patients born with congenital heart disease face as they survive to adulthood. You will be able to attend rapid-fire sessions, case-based symposia and thrilling controversies (pulmonary valve replacement, pregnancy in Fontan patients, treating borderline aortic coarctation). There will be intense interaction between the audience and experts in various fields of congenital cardiology and also in-depth discussion of ongoing questions. Also, three satellite symposia will be offered.

The claim for abstracts has been very successful. More than 130 have been received, the top 6 of which will be presented orally. Despite the online nature of the event, the registration of delegates is running very well. This highlights the value of a very exciting programme.

With no doubt, we anticipate a thrilling and very participative meeting.

I wish you all good health and best regards,


Laura Dos,
Communication Coordinator of the ACHD Working Group
