Posted On 2020-04-28 02:04:49



This Focused Series on Current Management Aspects in Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD): Part III is edited by Prof. Yskert von Kodolitsch from Clinic of Cardiology, University Clinic Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany, Prof. Harald Kaemmerer from German Heart Center Munich, Munich, Germany and Prof. Koichiro Niwa from Cardiovascular Center, St Luke’s International Hospital, Japan.

Prof. von Kodolitsch has a position as senior physician at the Clinic of Interventional Cardiology at the University Clinic of Hamburg-Eppendorf (Hamburg, Germany). In addition to his medical degree, he has a master degree in business administration. His fields of research comprise acute aortic syndromes, genetic aortic syndromes and valvular heart disease. Since 2009, he works on the foundation of what he calls “Medical Strategy”, a comprehensive approach to defining and putting into practice the goals of medicine. On this behalf, he merges values of Hippocratic medicine with classical approaches to strategy, as defined by philosophers such as Sun Tsu and Carl von Clausewitz.

Harald Kaemmerer is Professor of Internal Medicine at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. He is in charge of the Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program of the “German Heart Center Munich” (“Deutsches Herzzentrum München”), Munich, Germany. The “Department of Paediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease” of the German Heart Center Munich conducts a multifaceted program involving clinical care for adult patients with congenital heart disease.

Professor Kaemmerer was educated at the University of Veterinary Medicine of Hannover, and the Hannover Medical School, University of Hannover, Germany. He obtained the doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (VMD) as well as the doctorate in Medicine (MD). He specialized in Internal Medicine and in Cardiology, and is subspecialized in “Adult Congenital Heart Disease”.

Harald Kaemmerer served on several national and international committees, including the German Cardiac Society (DGK), European Society of Cardiology (ESC), the Association for European Paediatric Cardiology (AEPC), and the International Society for Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ISACHD). He was also a fellow of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and ex-chairman of the Working groups on Adult Congenital Heart Disease of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and of the German Cardiac Society (DGK) as well.

He was a member of the Task Force for Guidelines on Adult Congenital Heart Disease of the German Cardiac Society (DGK) as well as the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). From 2016 to 2010 he chaired the “Nationales Register für angeborene Herzfehler e.V.” (“National Register for Congenital Heart Defects”), Berlin, Germany. He is also responsible for the Congenital Heart Disease section of the international “COMPERA”-registry on pulmonary hypertension. His main scientific interest includes clinical and therapeutic aspects of Adult Congenital Heart Disease. He has authored and co-authored in peer-reviewed journals, particularly covering clinical research in the field of congenital heart disease. In 05/2015 Harald Kaemmerer became Honorary Member of the “Hungarian Society Cardiology”.

Professor Koichiro Niwa is an Executive Advisor in Cardiovascular Center of St Luke’s International Hospital, Japan. He received his medical degree from Chiba University, Japan. His research interest is mainly focused on adult congenital heart disease.

Professor Koichiro Niwa served on several national and international committees, including the Japanese Society for Adult Congenital Heart Disease(JSACHD), the Japanese College of Cardiology Society (FJCC), the American College of Cardiology (FACC), the American Hear Association (FAHA) and the International Society for Adult Congenital Cardiac Disease (ISACHD). He is also the President of Asia-Pacific Society for Adult Congenital Heart Disease (APSACHD) as well.
