Banquet Hall

13:00-14:30         LUNCH SYMPOSIUM 1: Cardiac Manifestations in Lysosomal Storage Diseases

                                Chair & Presenter: Nicholas Pangaud 

13:00-13:15         Introduction of Cardiac Aspects in LSDs

13:15-13:30         Cardiac Aspects in MPS

13:30-13:45         MPS I Patient Cases with Cardiac Manifestations

13:45-14:00         Q&A

Short description: Lysosomal storage diseases (LSDs) are a heterogeneous group of more than 40 different disorders caused by genetic defects in a lysosomal acid hydrolase, resulting in accumulation of various glycosaminoglycans, glycoproteins, or glycolipids within the lysosomes of different tissues. LSDs can affect the heart and constitute an important distinct and treatable cause of cardiomyopathy in children and account for a significant percentage of pediatric cardiomyopathies. Here we highlight aspects of cardiac involvement in select LSDs, including Mucopolysaccharidoses Type I (MPS I), that may help physicians recognize the disease.

MC2 Hall

13:15-14:15         LUNCH WORKSHOP 1: Medical 3D Printing in Pediatric Cardiology

Chairs: Inês da Silva, Magali Minet

13:15-13:30         Case presentation

                                Francesca R. Pluchinotta

13:30-14:15         Hands-on practice

Short description: To get a clearer view of a patient’s pathology, perform better virtual analyses and get precise insights prior to treatment or procedure planning, an increasing amount of pediatric cardiologists are using 3Dprinted anatomical models. These models provide better insights when understanding 3D relations between the different structures of the heart, which is crucial to solving complex congenital heart pathologies. Take part in a hands-on course to learn how you can create a 3D-printable anatomical cardiac model!

Kokkali Hall

13:30-14:30         LUNCH WORKSHOP 2: Invasive Blood Pressure Measurement in CHD: From Cathlab to MRI

Chair: Paul Borm

Instructors: Aphrodite Tzifa, Daniel Tanase, Vivek Muthurangu

13:30-13:45         Demonstration

                                Aphrodite Tzifa

13:45-14:00         Demonstration

                                Daniel Tanase

14:00-14:15         Demonstration

                                Vivek Muthurangu

14:15-14:30         Panel Discussion & Phantom Demonstrations

14:30                     Closing

Short description: The Workshop will focus on the use of MRI in the work-up of patient care for congenital heart disease. All speakers will share briefly how procedures to assess hemodynamics in patients with CHD can be.

MC3 Hall

13:30-14:30         LUNCH WORKSHOP 3: Visualisation and Quantification of Valves using 4D Ultrasound and 3D Printing

Speakers: Elsa Tsapaki, George Sarris

Commentators: Kosmas Benekos, Leonardo Bilalis

Short description: 4D Ultrasound allows for high diagnostic quality acquisition of heart structures. The high frame rate ensures good acquisition of moving tissue such as valves that can later be visualized on screen. We will see how we can use specialized quantification software (EchoPAC) to create models of the MV and AV and perform automatic measurements. We will also see how we can use the recent advancements that allow to move further, to the real world, by using the Ultrasound data to create real 3D objects offering the possibility for better understanding and treatment planning

Banquet Hall

13:00-14:30         LUNCH SYMPOSIUM 2: Challenging Cases: Imaging Made Easy. Case-based Symposium

                                Chair: Shakeel Quereshi

13:00-13:10         Session objectives and future technology

                                Shakeel Quereshi

13:10-13:25         Stenting AoArch in adulthood after CoA repair   

                                Michiel Voskuil

13:25-13:40         FAQ

13:40-13:55         PPVI in large RVOT

                                Nikolaus Haas

13:55-14:10         Complex Interventions in Fontan Circulation

                                Lee Benson

14:10-14:30         Discussion

Short description: Challenging cases require multiple decision makers and imaging modalities to perfectly personalize the treatment of children with congenital heart disease. Experienced physicians will share their challenging cases and show how smart solutions, ultra-low dose imaging, and integration helps you to improve outcomes for the most vulnerable patients; our children.

Symposium Sponsored by: Siemens Healthineers

 

Conference Room 1

13:30-14:30         LUNCH WORKSHOP 4: Cardiac Function Analysis of the Right and Left Ventricle in Congenital Heart Disease – Transferring 3D-Echocardiography to Clinical Practice in Children

                                Chairs: Kai Thorsten Laser, Anca Racolta

Short description: The workshop will focus on practical right and left ventricular volumetric measurements using dedicated TOMTEC software. The use of real time 3D echocardiography will be addressed first in theory to give an impression about feasibility, reproducibility, accuracy and reference values in the pediatric age group. In addition, the participants are guided through the workflow of data calculation using TOMTEC software in selected patient datasets.
