We would like to invite you to our 8th ‘Utrecht Sessions’ on congenital heart disease, which will take place on February 2nd – 4th, 2023 at the UMC Utrecht/Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, The Netherlands.
After last year’s highly successful conference on Aortic Anamalies, we will focus on the state-of-the-art management of patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Our multidisciplinary concept will cover the entire spectrum from fetal diagnostics to stage I palliation. The international faculty from Europe and North America quarantees stimulation lectures and interactive discussions. Your are welcome to attend and share your experience with all professionals being involved in HLHS care.
The main topics will be:
Pathology and embryology of hypoplastic left heart syndrome
Imaging: from fetal echo to advanced MRI and CT
Surgical strategies: Norwood versus Hybrid palliation
Early shunt stenosis and pulmonary artery stenosis
Neo-aortic arch stenosis: surgical strategies and decision making
Brain protection and neuro monitoring in stage I palliation
Peri-operative management of single ventricle patients in ICU
Anticoagulation before and after stage I
Interstage programs across the world, institutional experiences
We are looking forward to see you on February 3th and 4th, 2023 in Utrecht!

Hotel & Route
You’ll find accommodations in all price classes and you can spend the night in your own way. Try a simple hostel in the city centre or a five-star hotel in a monumental building. Or would you prefer a snug bed-and-breakfast in a cellar wharf? Plenty to choose from. And how about a night never to forget? Then book a room at the remarkable Mother Goose Hotel, Hotel Badhu, Court Hotel or the new Eye Hotel, for a special place to stay.
Utrecht is the beating heart of the Netherlands. A city with an unparalleled vitality. A medieval city centre small enough to explore on foot. Large enough to enjoy world class festivals, modern architecture, trendy shops and interesting museums for days on end.
If you really want to get to know Utrecht, then just stay for the night. Because once night falls, Utrecht turns into a beautifully lighted city. Monuments that were worth the trip during the day are all the more beautiful at night with the magic play of light along the Trajectum Lumen art route. Lanterns shine along the canals and it gets even cosier in the snug cafés.

The Center for Congenital Heart Defects is part of the University Medical Center in Utrecht and offers the widest possible range of diagnostic procedures and treatment for congenital heart defects, for children and adults. Children are treated at the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital (WKZ); adult patient (Grown Ups with Congenital Heart disease, or GUCH) at the UMC Utrecht. The two locations are directly linked and collaborate intensively at the UMC Utrecht Center for Congenital Heart Defects. In recent years, we have worked intensively with our important partners to develop top-of-the range diagnostic processes, care, treatment and research.
