ESC Working Group on Adult Congenital Heart Disease
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.
