Progress in the treatment of congenital heart disease is a success story enabling an increasing number of patients, even with complex congenital heart anomalies, to reach adult age. Accordingly, the number of adult patients with congenital heart disease is constantly growing.
However, since true correction of the cardiac lesions is seldomly achieved, these patients need lifelong expertise surveillance. There is an increasing demand for education and training in congenital heart disease, particularly in the adult patient group.
The Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease Working Group represents a platform for collaboration between congenital heart disease specialists with a common interest, particularly regarding clinical cardiology, imaging, ventricular function, valvular heart disease and pulmonary hypertension.
Moreover, the Working Group provides guidelines, position papers and training recommendations.Our annual meeting, held in March, is an outstanding forum to share research results and to meet colleagues in the field.
Cardiologists with a dedicated interest and special knowledge are needed to improve future patient care and we invite you to join us.
