The 8th European Echocardiography Course in Congenital Heart Disease will be organised in Bologna,
23rd to 26th October 2013.
his course provides a thorough overview of Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease and is aimed at Pediatric Cardiologists, Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease Specialists and Echocardiography Technicians working with Congenital Heart Disease patients. The programme strongly builds on the side-by-side comparison of morphology and imaging and discusses the major abnormalities found in clinical practice

A short note on Bicuspid Aortic Valve (BAV)
Bicuspid aortic valve disease (BAV) is the most common congenital heart abnormality, affecting 0.5â€“2% of the total population with a male predominance .
Early fetal echocardiography and increased nuchal translucency
Increased NT is associated with a spectrum of fetal abnormalities.
The commonest association is with chromosomal defects. In fetuses
with increased NT and a normal karyotype, the risk of an adverse
outcome remains and increases with increasing NT.
The 7th European Echocardiography Course in Congenital Heart Disease will be organised in
Barcelona, from Wednesday 3th to Saturday 6th October 2012.
This course provides a thorough overview of Echocardiography in Congenital Heart Disease and is aimed at Pediatric Cardiologists, Grown-up Congenital Heart Disease Specialists and Echocardiography Technicians working with Congenital Heart Disease patients.
The 6th World Congress of Paediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery 2013 takes place from the 17th to the 22nd February 2013.
The World Congress is run for and on behalf of the International Steering Committee for the World Congress and builds on the solid scientific foundations established at the previous World Congresses.

Chiariâ€™s Network as a Cause of Fetal and Neonatal PathologyAbstract Chiariâ€™s network is a remnant of the eustachian valve located in the right atrium.
Incomplete involution of the fetal sinus venosus valves results in â€˜â€˜redundantâ€™â€™ Chiariâ€™s network, which may compromise cardiovascular function. This report describes a case with the novel ï¬nding of prenatal compromise due to redundant Chiariâ€™s network and an uncommon case with signiï¬cant postnatal symptoms.
