Welcome to Essential ACHD. 

Our primary aim is to publish case discussions that illustrate the every day investigation and management of adults with congenital heart disease.

Over time we hope to build a valuable case-based educational resource, principally aimed at ACHD non-specialists, that covers the breadth of the specialty.

If you would like to contribute a case then please refer to our author instructionsWe hope that Cardiology trainees in particular will take the opportunity to submit cases. We'd also welcome cases from Paediatric Cardiologists (again, especially trainees) that illustrate the childhood presentation and initial management of congenital cardiac conditions so that the issues facing patients in adulthood can be appreciated in context.

Contact us by email, leedsachd@gmail.com and follow us on Twitter, @EssentialACHD.

If you have any suggestions on how we might develop Essential ACHD further please let us know, but do bear in mind that our annual budget is £0 (in Europe that's €0 and in America $0).
