Utrecht Sessions

Utrecht Sessions

Every year the symposium 'Utrecht Sessions' is organized by the Center for Congenital Heart Defects UMC Utrecht

The Utrecht Sessions will take place on January 30th - February 1st 2025 at the UMC Utrecht/Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, The Netherlands. After last year’s highly successful conference on Hypoplastic Left Hear Syndrome, we will focus on the state-of-the-art management of patients with Atrioventricular Septal Defects. Our multidisciplinary concept will cover the entire spectrum from fetal diagnostics to stage I palliation. The Friday and Saturday will be in English and we aim to invite an interesting international faculty. You are welcome to attend and share your experience with all professionals being involved in Atrioventricular Septal Defects.

The Center for Congenital Heart Defects is part of the University Medical Center in Utrecht and offers the widest possible range of diagnostic procedures and treatment for congenital heart defects, for children and adults. Children are treated at the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital (WKZ); adult patient (Grown Ups with Congenital Heart disease, or GUCH) at the UMC Utrecht. The two locations are directly linked and collaborate intensively at the UMC Utrecht Center for Congenital Heart Defects. In recent years, we have worked intensively with our important partners to develop top-of-the range diagnostic processes, care, treatment and research.
