ISHLT 2013 in MONTRÉAL:
Pediatric Program Highlights


CHRISTIAN BENDEN, MD and TP SINGH, MD
Pediatric Program Committee Representatives



The Montréal Program offers a wide variety of sessions of interest to the pediatric cardiothoracic transplant community including a plenary session "How to Succeed When the Right Ventricle Fails." Symposia address the Unique Aspects of Heart Failure in Children, Mechanical Circulatory Support in Congenital Heart Disease and Developments and Controversies in Pediatric Lung Transplantation.

Some of the current management controversies are on the agenda in a debate session titled, "Pediatric Heart Transplantation: Art, Science or Voodoo?" that will include audience questions to the speakers. Together with the Nursing, Health Science and Allied Health Council, we plan to discuss Psychosocial Issues in Pediatric Cardiothoracic Transplantation. And if you are still up for it, Montréal is there to explore with its combination of European charm and North American pizzazz, so there is more than one reason to book your trip to the ISHLT Meeting in Montréal!!
