3rd Annual Diagnosis and Management of Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Special Focus Session on Myocardial Bridges

Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge, Stanford, CA

A Continuing Medical Education Conference presented by the Department of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Statement of Need

This CME conference aims to enhance the skills of practicing cardiologists and other healthcare professionals in the day-to-day care of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) patients in order to align the quality of care in accordance with the national ACHD guidelines. Topics include the latest study and data as well as common clinical scenarios and areas of controversy.  The conference will utilize lectures, debates, Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and audience response feedback to provide a robust and interactive environment for learning.

Target Audience

This regional program is designed for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and allied health professionals who provide or may provide care for adults born with congenital heart disease.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify management approaches in ACHD patients with heart failure
  2. Evaluate management strategies for patients with ACHD according to the guidelines
  3. Discuss the effects of pregnancy on the management of patients with ACHD
  4. Examine long term treatment outcomes of patients with ACHD and arrhythmia
  5. Analyze the evolving clinical data of transcatheter therapies in patients with ACHD
  6. Review appropriate indications for pulmonary vasodilator therapy in patients with ACHD
  7. Distinguish management approaches in patients with ACHD and heart failure vs. heart failure patients with no ACHD
  8. Determine when cardiac transplantation is appropriate in patients with ACHD
  9. Interpret the key imaging features by echo for various types of single ventricle palliations in patients with ACHD
  10. Describe the anatomy, physiology, and clinical presentation of myocardial bridge
