Topics that will be discussed

  1. Advances in Diagnosis and Imaging Techniques: Discussions on the latest diagnostic tools, such as echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and CT scans, and their applications in evaluating adult patients with congenital heart defects.                                                                                                               

  2. Surgical and Interventional Techniques: Presentations on the latest surgical and interventional procedures used in the treatment of complex congenital heart diseases, including minimally invasive approaches, catheter-based interventions, and hybrid procedures.                                                                                                                                                                 

  3. Transition from Pediatric to Adult Care: Discussions on the challenges and strategies involved in transitioning patients with CHD from pediatric cardiology care to adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) care, emphasizing the importance of long-term follow-up and comprehensive care.                                                                                                                           

  4. Pregnancy and Family Planning: Presentations on the management of pregnancy in women with congenital heart disease, including pre-conception counseling, risk assessment, and specialized care during pregnancy to ensure the well-being of both the mother and the fetus.                                                                                                                                               

  5. Adult Congenital Heart Disease Subtypes: In-depth discussions on specific congenital heart defects commonly encountered in adults, such as Tetralogy of Fallot, transposition of the great arteries, atrial septal defects, Ebstein's anomaly, Fontan circulation, etc., including their natural history, late complications, and treatment options.                                                                                                        

  6. Heart Failure and Pulmonary Hypertension: Talks on the management of heart failure and pulmonary hypertension in adult patients with congenital heart disease, including medical therapies, device therapy (e.g., pacemakers, implantable defibrillators), and advanced heart failure options (e.g., heart transplantation, ventricular assist devices).

  8. Research and Innovations: Discussions on ongoing research studies, clinical trials, and innovative approaches in the field of adult congenital heart disease, including genetic studies, regenerative medicine, novel devices, and emerging therapies.                                                                                                                      

  9. Multidisciplinary Care: Emphasis on the importance of a multidisciplinary approach involving adult congenital cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, psychologists, and social workers to provide comprehensive care and improve patient outcomes.
