The 12th annual Conference of Pediatric Cardiology Section organized in Zabrze in 7–8.06.2013 was a very important medical event for cardiologists and doctors looking after patients with congenital heart diseases (CHD). The symposium was part of the 20th Jubilee of the International Cardiology Conference traditionally taking place in Zabrze in spring. Almost 2000 doctors including 300 pediatricians from all parts of Poland participated in this event. The main topic of our conference was advances in interventional cardiology of CHD and was presented in the 5 following sessions. In the opening session interesting introductory lectures were presented by professors W. Ka­walec, B. Brzezińska-Rajszys and B. Maruszewski from IPCZD in Warsaw. The second session concerned standard per­cutaneous interventions in treatment of selected CHD. Angioplasty and stent implantations in coarctation of aorta (CoA) were excellently described by Dr. M. Zubrzycka, closure of atrial septal defects by Prof. M. Szkutnik, closure of patent arterial ducts (PDA) by Dr. K. Godlewski, pul­monary balloon valvuloplasty by Dr. P. Weryński and balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) by Prof. J. Białkowski. In the third session titled “New challenge for interventional cardiology” lectures were presented by Prof. J. Szymkiewicz-Dangel (fetal interventions), Dr. P. Dryżek (neonatal interventions), Dr. I. Haponiuk (hybrid procedures), Dr. R. Fiszer (per­cu­taneous pulmonary valve implantation), Dr. T. Moszura (interventions in univentricular heart) and Dr. R. Sabiniewicz (closure of vascular malformations). In the next session Prof. K. Bieganowska, Prof. W. Bobkowski and Dr. R. Le­narczyk presented in their lectures summaries concerning advances in electrotherapy of rhythm and conduction disturbances in children (pacemaker and cardioverter implantations as well as radiofrequency ablation and electroanatomical 3D mapping).

The last, probably the most interesting session was entitled “What is new in the world? Invited experts lectures”. The first speaker was Prof. Shiliang Jiang, leader of the biggest cardiological center in China (Fuwai Hospital, Beijing). This hospital was visited recently by a Polish go­vernment delegation with Marshall Ewa Kopacz. Prof Jiang presented Chinese experience in percutaneous closure of ventricular septal defects (VSD). There were more than

20 000 patients with VSD treated percutaneously in all over China (for comparison...
