Severe Ebstein Anomaly: Perinatal Management Dilemmas.

On behalf of the Fetal Heart Society, we would like to invite you to our next educational webinar on November 19th 2020 at 8:30 PM EST.

Drs. Lindsay Freud and Rajesh Punn will be presenting Severe Ebstein Anomaly: Perinatal Management Dilemmas.  Their initial presentations will highlight case-based management dilemmas and novel interventions.  Along with Drs. Lisa Hornberger, Jay Pruetz, and Wayne Tworetzky, they will then lead a discussion of strategies to manage these challenging patients in-utero and immediately post-delivery.

This promises to be an important discussion of ways to improve our perinatal management of a highly complex defect. Please invite any colleagues who might be interested.  See details on how to join us below.  We look forward to “seeing” you on November 19th!

Please note that this webinar will fall on the 3rd rather than the 2nd Thursday of the month.
