INVITATION

Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to announce that 18th "National Pediatric Cardiology and Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Congress” which will be held in Antalya at Rixos Premium Belek Hotel Congress Centre during April 11-14, 2019.


In this meeting, we will have more international faculty than previous ones, so Mario Carminati, Giovanni Di Salvo, Ziyad Hijazi, Gregor Krings, Angelini Annalisa, Massimo Caputo, Nagarajan Muthialu, Hakan Akıntürk, Fransesca Pluchinotta in addition to many expert national faculties will participate the meeting and give attractive lectures in their expert areas. Most of the lectures will be given in English in spite of the formal language is Turkish, simultaneous translation from Turkish to English and head-phones will be available in all lectures in the main halls in case of Turkish lectures would happen.


The focus of the traditional pre-meeting half-day course will be on “Cardiac Morphology with Imaging Correlations” for this meeting. The course will be held by invited international faculty, and the emphases will be not only on the observation of the morphologic specimens but also the clinical correlation of these pathologic specimens with different imaging modalities in real life. Morphology lectures will be followed by presentations on how to create 2D/3-D models (echocardiography, CT, MR and 3-D printed models) and the role of advanced imaging techniques in clinical decision making. Considering the lack of well trained cardiac morphologist and pathologists in our region and our country, a “Cardiac Morphology Course” correlating with cardiac imaging will be more attractive for most of the cardiologists as well as the surgeons with upmost participation.


During following days, we will have specific sessions determined by the Working Groups of Pediatric Cardiology, specific sessions for Cardiac Surgeons, and joint sessions that merge both disciplines of Cardiology and Surgery with conjunct speakers. These sessions will involve innovative and contemporary topics and will be presented by experienced national and international authorities.


It is our belief that your valuable contributions with original clinical studies and interesting case reports to the oral and poster presentation sessions, will make this congress even more productive and colorful than ever. In addition to the members of our society, colleagues from different disciplines, nurses, perfusionists and health technicians, all involved in the care of pediatric and congenital heart diseases, are expected to attend the meeting.


I am sure that we will realize a very successful meeting with constantly increasing attendance and contributions of the international and national colleagues, and so you will enjoy the meeting which will happen in the most beautiful days of the spring season in Antalya.


Hope to see you all in Antalya…
