6th European Transoesophageal Echocardiography Course on Congenital Heart Disease
8:30 am, 19 March 2020 to 5:00 pm, 20 March 2020
19 - 20 March 2020 – This is the sixth dedicated course on transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) on congenital heart disease providing the participant with the essential theoretical basics, morphological aspects of common lesions in congenital heart disease as well as practical aspects of TOE in children and adults with congenital heart disease. The two-day course will provide hands on TOE simulator experience with particular focus on congenital lesions frequently encountered in clinical practice. All practical sessions will be directly supervised by experienced TOE operators in this field. Participants will have opportunities to discuss challenging cases with instructors individually. This course is an ideal complementation to the popular “European Echocardiography Course on Congenital Heart Disease”.

- Course Details
What will you learn?
- By the end of this course participants
will have a good understanding of the
physics involved in transoesophageal
echocardiography (TOE) and understand
indications and limitations of TOE in children
and adults with congenital heart disease
- Side-by-side comparison of cardiac morphology
and TOE will enable delegates to appreciate
the complexity in congenital heart disease and
how to apply this in clinical TOE practice.
- Delegates will gain an overview of current
advances in TOE imaging modalities and new
emerging roles for TOE in congenital heart
- Participants will have learnt about the
challenges in imaging complex patients
through case-based discussions with experts in
the field and will have gained further insight
into TOE guided device closures of challenging
cases with congenital heart disease.
- Delegates will gain confidence in operating
TOE probes safely and succinctly under expert
supervision using hands-on TOE simulator
training sessions, which will prepare them for
the clinical use of TOE in children and adults
with congenital heart disease.
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at clinical staff working in the field of paediatric or adult congenital heart disease.
Whether you are working in paediatric cardiology, cardiac theatres, interventional angiography suites,
echocardiography laboratories or specialising in grown-up congenital heart disease this course will expand your knowledge, experience and refresh your TOE practice in patients with congenital heart disease.
