Welcome to the Berzelius symposium on The Cardiac Patient from Birth to Adulthood. The meeting will be held on 21-22 February 2019 at the Swedish Society of Medicine, Klara Östra Kyrkogata 10 in Stockholm.
This two-day symposium will cover several aspects on heart disease but with a focus on congenital heart disease.
The lecturers are international experts in their respective fields. There will also be clinical case presentations with discussions and possibilities to present abstracts with input from leading experts.
Areas covered are epidemiology of adult congenital heart disease, congenital heart disease and development of atherosclerosis, prematurity and later development of arterial hypertension, single ventricle physiology, exercise capacity, arrhythmia, patient reported outcomes and closure of persistent foramen ovale in cryptogenic stroke.
The meeting is arranged in collaboration between Journal of Internal Medicine, Acta Pediatrica and the Swedish Society of Medicine.
Welcome to the symposium!
