ACHD Interventions: Recommendations from a Joint Working Group of the British Congenital Cardiac Association (BCCA), British Cardiovascular Intervention Society (BCIS) and British Cardiovascular Society (BCS) - October 2011
A joint working group of the British Cardiovascular Society, British Congenital Cardiac Association and British Cardiovascular Intervention Society, in discussion with the Grown-Up Congenital Heart Patients Association, has produced recommendations for cardiac units that perform or wish to perform interventions in patients with congenital heart disease. The document focuses on PFO and ASD closure and is not concerned with more complex interventions that remain the preserve of specialist ACHD centres. It highlights the importance of a multidisciplinary team approach to the management of these patients and the need for links between 'Local ACHD centres' performing a limited range of interventions and 'Specialised ACHD Centres'. Particular emphasis is placed on the need for appropriate training, continuing competence, the avoidance of low volume or occasional practice and mandatory submission of data to CCAD. These recommendations will be reviewed in three years.
