Interdisciplinary Scientific Program

Every area of industry related to pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery is represented in our scientific program which will have as a main topic the Fate of the Atrio-Ventricular Valves from the Fetus to the Adult including the advanced diagnostic features and the treatment strategies (interventional and surgical) of the following subjects:


  • Surgery for congenital mitral valve anomalies
  • Surgery for congenital tricuspid valve anomalies
  • Valvar reconstruction in balanced atrio-ventricular defects
  • Surgical management of atrio-ventricular valve in single ventricle hearts
  • Surgical management of failing atrio-ventricular valves and ventricles

Our scientific committee represents leaders in pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery from around the globe and includes members of each hosting and participating Society.

We have developed a program designed so that healthcare professionals from both disciplines can customize their learning experience, based on their own needs. The interactive parallel Simulation Laboratory, including surgical training, interventional training and 2D echo imaging will showcase the evolution of cardiac imaging, procedural planning and simulation, and cutting-edge technology that could revolutionize your practice.
