Event Overview
Welcome message:

The World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery (WSPCHS) is the largest professional organization in the world dedicated to pediatric and congenital cardiac surgery. On July 22-26, 2018, the 6th Scientific Meeting of the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery (WSPCHS 2018) will join the 18th International Symposium on Congenital Heart Disease at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club in Orlando, Florida.


This event will bring together 1,000 cardiac professionals from all over the world for lectures by preeminent speakers, late-breaking research updates, clinical abstracts and networking opportunities with global cardiovascular experts in public health. The scientific program includes tracks for Cardiac Surgery, Cardiology/Fetal, Anesthesia, Intensive Care, Nursing, Perfusion, Administration and Post-Graduate Training.


Sunday, July 22, is the opening day for CHD18, with a focus on Transposition of the Great Arteries and the Arterial Switch Operation: Lessons Learned After 40 Years and Future Steps for Improvement. CHD18 will merge with the WSPCHS18 scientific meeting from Monday through Wednesday. Each morning will feature engaging plenary sessions with individualized specialty tracks in the afternoons.


The optional surgical skills lab on Thursday, July 26, featuring 3D-printed hearts, will provide unique opportunities to improve surgical skills on a variety of anomalies. Participants may take their 3D-printed hearts back to their home institutions for future reference.


The vision of the WSPCHS is that every child born anywhere in the world with a congenital heart defect should have access to appropriate medical and surgical care. The society's mission is to promote the highest quality comprehensive cardiac care to all patients with congenital heart disease, from the fetus to the adult, regardless of the patient’s economic means, with an emphasis on excellence in teaching, research and community service.
