Abstract

To mark the fifth anniversary of systematic care for adult patients with congenital heart disease, we organized a meeting at the National Center at the University Hospital Centre Zagreb with the intention of presenting complex clinical cases from the field. The meeting was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but a multidisciplinary council was held with the participation of an international top expert. Several patients were presented and conclusions were made about their further treatment. Herein we present four interesting cases: two patients with an accidental late diagnosis, one with atrial septal defect and a second with tetralogy of Fallot, a patient with failing Fontan circulation treated by heart transplantation, and a patient with surgically corrected transposition of great arteries with postoperative problems. In addition to patient reports, the discussions sections present dilemmas about treatment, available literature, and conclusions related to each case.
