The scientific program will be organised in different sessions with a guiding thread: we will chronologically go through the different waves of evolving issues that the adult cardiologists have needed to face since babies born with a congenital heart disease survive to adulthood. Initially, the challenges of organization of healthcare and diagnostic approach, that currently has evolved to incorporate the most modern non-invasive diagnostic tools. Later, our adolescents and young adults, and with them the physicians who take care of them, faced the risk of arrhythmias, sudden cardiac death and thereupon re-interventions and its indications. And finally, as ACHD population ages, the management of co-morbidities and heart failure or advance care planning has to be an integral part of the comprehensive care for adults with congenital heart disease. Rapid fire sessions, case-based symposiums and debates provide a unique opportunity for intense interaction between the audience and experts in various fields of congenital cardiology and will allow in-depth discussion of ongoing questions.
