  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This webinar will highlight the importance of looking out for acquired heart disease which can develop in patients with congenital heart disease. 

Speakers will present a series of cases demonstrating the management of different late complications in patients with congenital heart disease. This will serve to illustrate the importance of other cardiac lesion considerations such as cardiomyopathies, coronary disease and arrhythmias.  

During this webinar you will:

  • Understand the importance of acquired heart disease in patients with congenital heart disease and factors that should trigger consideration of this when assessing patients

  • Acknowledge the late medical and structural complications that can develop in patients with tetralogy of fallot/pulmonary atresia following repair
  • Learn the imaging approaches for the assessment of patients with complications

A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
