The successes of cardiac surgery have resulted in a dramatically increased life expectancy of children with congenital heart disease (CHD). Unfortunately, this prolonged survival puts patients at higher risk for devastating complications such as pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Ilja Blok focuses on risk stratification in adult patients with PAH-CHD, the various treatment options available, new indications for therapy perioperatively and a sports encouragement program for patients with CHD.
