The syndrome of right heart failure is poorly understood and defined. Clinicians often fail to diagnose early stages of the disease and allow the manifestations to progress to severe disability. There is a pressing need to define, understand, and inculcate awareness about this disease in clinicians. Similarly, understanding right heart dysfunction requires focused investigations and research study, best brought forth by a multidisciplinary collaboration. This program is intended for clinical and research professionals who are involved in the care of patients with, and the study of, right heart disease, congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and associated disorders.
Covered topics include:
- Advanced right heart failure
- Valvular heart disease
- Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension
- Pulmonary heart disease
- Venous thrombosis
