Fifth Annual Master Class in Congenital Cardiac Morphology
Join us for the Fifth Annual Master Class in Congenital Cardiac Morphology with world renowned cardiac pathologist, Professor Robert Anderson, MD, FRCPath. This comprehensive two-and-a-half day course will use didactic presentations, live video demonstrations, and hands-on examination of cardiac specimens to cover a wide range of congenital cardiac malformations. There will be an emphasis on imaging and surgical correlations of each lesion. This year, the Master Class and Hands-on Workshop will focus on left-to-right shunts.
- Morphology of the normal heart
- Sequential segmental analysis
- Interatrial communications
- Ventricular septal defects
- Atrioventricular septal defects
- Unbalanced Atrioventricular septal defect
- Patent arterial duct
- Aorto-pulmonary window
Upon completion of the class, participants will understand the usefulness and practicality of the sequential segmental analytical approach to the examination of congenitally malformed hearts, as well as be familiar with the morphology of a large variety of congenital heart defects.
Who Should Attend
This conference is designed for seasons, junior, and trainee cardiologists; cardiothoracic surgeons; pathologists; pathology assistants; cardiac morphologists; echocardiography sonographers; and other medical professionals interested in congenital heart disease.
