The CDH meeting is being held as part of an event programme linking closely also with the Peter Paul Rickham Symposium which celebrates the life-time achievements of an eminent paediatric surgeon who was co-founder of the World’s 1st Neonatal Surgical Unit at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in 1953. A faculty of leading experts will deliver state-of-the-art lectures pertinent to clinical care and management of CDH ( prenatal / postnatal / long term follow up ) including the latest advances in the basic sciences / developmental lung biology of particular relevance to the clinician / investigator(s). We invite Abstract submission(s) as free paper scientific sessions are a key feature included in the 2 day symposium timetable.

CDH Parent support groups are particularly invited to attend and contribute . We are delighted to announce that CDH UK will be joining us for the 1st International CDH Symposium to be held in the UK.
