13th Annual Masterclass in Congenital Cardiac Morphology

September 30, 2020 to October 2, 2020

This comprehensive two and a half-day course in congenital cardiac morphology will use didactic presentations, live video demonstrations, and hands-on examination of cardiac specimens from the Frank E. Sherman and Cora C. Lenox Heart Museum to cover a wide range of congenital cardiac malformations. There will be an emphasis on imaging and surgical correlations for each lesion. Upon completion of this class, participants will understand the usefulness and practicality of the sequential segmental analytical approach to the examination of congenitally malformed hearts, as well as be familiar with the morphology of a large variety of congenital heart defects. This year, we will focus on the cardiac valves. The program will be divided into two parts. On the first and second days, and the morning of the last day, we will systematically review the chosen topics with focus on didactic presentations, video demonstrations of cardiac specimens, and imaging correlations. On the last day, there will be an intensive hands-on workshop examining cardiac specimens
