Mumbai, the fast paced cosmopolitan melting pot of different Indian ethnicities is also the commercial & financial capital of India. October is considered perfect for a visit to the city, as it is right after the monsoons, when one can enjoy a pleasant stay minus the sultry heat.

A relaxing evening walk along the beaches, delicious meals at the most renowned restaurants & shopping at the famous street bazaars are a must-do for all the tourists visiting Mumbai. A trip to this heritage city which is forever beaming with vigour & life is incomplete without visiting some of the most iconic places such as the Gateway of India, Bandra-Worli Sea Link, Marine Drive, Shree Siddhivinayak Temple, Mount Mary Church and Haji Ali Dargah . Join us in this city of dreams for a hearty dose of academics.

We promise to make your visit memorable.

Pediatric Cardiac Society of India (PCSI) has been one of the most vibrant & ever growing society spreading across the length & breadth of the country. What started as a small group in 1998, has grown to become the guiding force for the management of congenital heart diseases across the country. The society, has also successfully initiated & nurtured multiple training programmes to meet the increasing demand for qualified & trained paediatric cardiologists. The official journal of PCSI is one of the most respected & indexed journals in the world today (www.annalspc.com).

The 18th annual meet of the PCSI is being held in Mumbai after 7 years. Since the last event in Mumbai in 2010, the city has witnessed a booming growth in paediatric cardiac programmes. Mumbai has become a hub for CHD surgery across all of western India.

The city approximately performs 2,500 paediatric cardiac surgeries every year for the last few years, & more than 1,000 among them are infantile & neonatal heart surgeries. Paediatric cardiac interventions have been growing exponentially in the state to about 2,000 each year. Most importantly the detection rate of CHD has increased with the growing number of paediatric cardiologists.

The city also witnessed successful paediatric cardiac transplantations, Norwood surgeries, hybrid heart surgeries, complex double switch operations apart from performing complex paediatric cardiac interventions. Initiation of public health insurance programme in this state, like many other states in the country has also acted as a catalyst in delivering optimal care for a larger number of children with CHD.

At a national level, the first successful fetal cardiac intervention & unveiling of the indigenously designed multipurpose Occluder Device at Hyderabad have been the major landmarks. From that perspective we at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital proudly look forward to hosting this meet for all of you to deliberate on ways to improve patient care.
