Lange Symposium 2016

Dear colleagues,

for 2016 we would again like to invite you to our symposium in Berlin.

The 12th DHZB Lange Symposium for Congenital Heart Disease will take place on
17 and 18 September 2016 at the dbb forum berlin, Friedrichstr. 169/170, 10117 Berlin.

This year the DHZB Lange Symposium will be held at a new time of year but the venue in the heart of Berlin remains the same. In 2016 the Symposium will look at the complex field of the AV canal with all its facets and difficulties. These lie not only in the great variability in forms of disease but also in the associated need for individual therapy strategies. At this year’s Symposium we would like to provide an overview of the current standards and discuss possible future developments – both surgical and interventional. 

The two-day Symposium will again bring together clinical and research experts from Germany, Europe, the USA and Australia to present an exciting and innovative program. Their contributions will lead us into the fascinating and highly complex world of the AV canal and reflect comprehensive treatment strategies. We are already looking forward to stimulating lectures and interactive discussions. Discussion will again have a special place, to encourage interaction between the participants and the speakers and chairpersons.

The main topics of 2016 Symposium will be:

  • Basics
  • Highlight Session – Keep it in balance
  • The Balanced AV Canal – All you need is surgery
  • New Approaches
  • The Sunday Morning Highlight Lecture
  • AV Canal – Losing the balance
  • The Unbalanced AV Canal
  • Long-Term Implications: Myocardium – PAH – quality of life

To complement the scientific program there will be an Evening Party on 17 September 2016 in the “Bar jeder Vernunft”. After a walking dinner we will be treated to a live band, after which the dance floor will be opened, giving us the opportunity to further relax.We are very much looking forward to a very interesting symposium and hope that we will be able to welcome you in large numbers in September 2016.

*****NEW******  Basic CMR Course


Expertise Confirmed

Department of Internal Medicine/Cardiology certified as Training Center for Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The DHZB cardiologists now have official confirmation of the expertise they have built up over many years: the German Society for Cardiology (DGK) has certified the Department of Internal Medicine/Cardiology of the Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin (DHZB, German Heart Institute Berlin) as a training center for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

“Our institution has always played a leading role in the development of this diagnostic method. And it has always been important to us that cardiac MRI belongs in well-trained hands,” says Rolf Gebker, who led the certification process together with his deputy, Sebastian Kelle.

Only at the beginning of the year did the DGK publish its own training curriculum, in view of the increasing importance of cardiac MRI, which lays the foundation for comprehensive MRI training for cardiologists.

The DHZB is now one of the few institutions in Germany to be made an MRI training center under these new guidelines.
