1st Conference for Adults with Congenital Heart Diseases. “Care for congenital heart disease patients in Poland”
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.

place on 30th of May 2014 in Krakow, Poland. It was organized by

ships. The event was composed of 4 sessions. The lectures were held
