The population of adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is heterogeneous with respect to the type and complexity of the defect as well as its clinical manifestations. In many patients congenital heart disease (CHD), after corrective surgery in the childhood, does not affect significantly their adult life. However, some of them require multispecialist care. These adult patients with moderate and extremely complex CHD, despite reaching their adulthood are unable to function independently in the society.


1st Conference for Adults with Congenital Heart Diseases took
place on 30th of May 2014 in Krakow, Poland. It was organized by
Working Group in Congenital Heart Diseases of Polish Society of
Cardiology and Centre in Rare Cardiovascular Diseases in John
Paul Hospital, Krakow. Its objective was to present the most com‑
mon problems and late complications in adults with congenital
heart diseases. There was also time for meeting and making friend‑
ships. The event was composed of 4 sessions. The lectures were held
by the most outstanding specialists in congenital heart diseases.
