Welcome Letter

Dear colleagues,

We would like to enthusiastically invite you to attend “The 8th International Congress on Cardiac Problems in Pregnancy (CPP) 2023″ which will take place on 19-22 October, 2023 in Abu Dhabi. 

The goals of the congress are to advance the knowledge and expertise of health care professionals around the globe by the exchange of information, and update on recent data and guidelines for the management of cardiovascular (CV) diseases during pregnancy and the postpartum period. 

The CPP 2023 builds upon the 7 previous successful meetings in Valencia Spain, Berlin Germany, Venice Italy, Las Vegas USA, Bologna Italy, a virtual meeting due to the Covid-19 epidemic in 2021 and the recent meeting last year in Porto Portugal. These meetings covered a wide range of topics, related to maternal and fetal cardiac conditions associated with pregnancy and were attended by more than 400 participants including many of the leaders in the field. The coming congress will include a large number of plenary sessions with state-of-the-art reviews and will incorporate results of research both basic and clinical as well as clinical observations with a focus on practical management recommendations. The Congress will include updates of on-going registries, guidelines, case studies and clinical debates. This meeting will include sessions on Cardio Obstetrics, like how to manage, and meet the experts for those who are less experienced in the field. In addition, we’ll expand the coverage of cardiovascular aspects of medical problems during pregnancy. 

As the management of heart disease in pregnancy requires a multidisciplinary approach, the intended audience will include cardiologists, obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, obstetrical and cardiac anesthesiologists, family medicine specialists, hematologists, pediatricians, pediatric cardiologists, geneticists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, clinical pharmacists and other health professionals with a special interest in managing pregnant women with heart disease. 

The lectures in all the halls will be recorded and available to the participants for an additional 3 months until the end of January 2024. 

We look forward to your participation in what promises to be another exciting congress.
