On 21 and 22 September 2019, top-class specialists had been invited to Berlin by the DHZB, for the 15th 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 symposium this year was dedicated to the complex field of end stage heart failure in congenital heart disease. 
Specialists from the DHZB and other leading international institutions reported in 29 lectures on existing forms of treatment as well as research projects and their results.
Here you may watch a selection from the 15th DHZB Lange Symposium lectures.
