Hands-on Cardiac Morphology Course - February 2017
Thursday, 16 February 2017 at 08:45 - Saturday, 18 February 2017 at 16:35 (GMT)
** This edition will be held at the Wolfson Centre, Mecklenburgh Square, WC1N 2AP . Closest tube stations are Holborn, Russell Square or Euston **
Please note this course runs Thursday to Saturday
Would you like to know how to analyse congenital defects in a logical and stepwise manner ?
This 3-day course is suitable for all those wishing to improve their knowledge of structural heart disease (congenital heart malformations) from fetal life to adulthood. Information will be built up from analysis of normal anatomy & simple defects to more complex morphology and is suitable for a wide range of disciplines.
Those with limited background knowledge may find it useful to visit our website www.cardiacmorphology.com and preview the hands-on course material (see FAQs below)
20% discount of Standard ticket price for UCL or GOSH employees. Use CODE UCL123 or GOSH123 when booking.
AIMS & OBJECTIVES
The aim of this 3-day course is to allow for didactic teaching followed by small group, object-based learning and discussion about a wide range of structural heart lesions.
By the end of the course, participants should be comfortable with the anatomy of major groups of congenital heart malformation and be able to analyse hearts in a sequential segmental fashion.
* The programme format will follow that of our previous hands-on courses - full details on request
DAY1: Approach to analysis, In-depth normal anatomy, ASD, VSD, AVSD
DAY2: Arterial abnormalities: Tetralogy, DORV, TGA, CCTGA, Arterial valvar lesions
DAY3: Complex disease: Isomerism, Functionally Univentricular Hearts, Anomalies of the Aortic Arch

When & Where
Dr Andrew Cook, UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science
Dr. Andrew Cook is Senior Lecturer and leads the Cardiovascular Morphology and Education Unit at the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science / Great Ormond Street Hospital Institute of Child Health, London, UK.
He has an international reputation for providing education, training and expertise in the structural architecture of the heart including major textbooks on surgical anatomy of the heart and fetal cardiology. He is founder of the website www.cardiacmorphology.com and advises companies on anatomy for device design and simulation.
During this work he has developed specific expertise in correlating cardiac structure with imaging from fetus to adult. Current areas of research are: micro-imaging cardiac architecture using micro-computed tomography and phase-contrast synchrotron imaging; and deep-phenotyping of heart defects in mutant mouse embryos using high throughput, high-resolution 3D imaging (www.dmdd.org.uk)
