On 16 and 17 September 2017, top-class specialists from every continent had been invited to Berlin by the DHZB, for the 13th time, to exchange information and experience concerning the latest developments and new procedures in heart medicine for children.

The two-day “DHZB Lange Symposium”, named after the founder of the DHZB’s Department for Congenital Heart Disease/Pediatric Cardiology, Prof. Peter Lange, is now regarded as one of the most important symposia in this field.

The focus this year was complex field of the management of the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract with all its facets and difficulties.

Thirty-one specialists from the DHZB and other leading international institutions reported in over 32 lectures on existing forms of treatment as well as research projects and their results.
Here you may watch a selection from the 13th DHZB Lange Symposium lectures.
