In this 5th volume of a series on ACHD, international authors again present new research findings and communicate relevant aspects of ACHD care. Recent data on cardiac failure, pulmonary hypertension, aortopathies, vascular aging, QOL and psychological issues, health care status, transposition of the great arteries after atrial switch procedures, and Ebstein’s anomaly are presented. Also, interesting findings on bicuspid aortic valve, Fabry disease, left ventricular (LV) noncompaction and Fontan procedure are provided.
