The date for this year’s meeting has been fixed for 7.10.2022.
Making the booking, at the Circle here in Sheffield, it was clear that the on/off Covid rules have made the hosts cautious in defining how many will be allowed in for the room. At present, we are planning to have at least 30 possible in-person seats, and will endeavour to have some on-line for others.
I will update you later in the summer about projected numbers, but if you want to make a booking the please email me (email@example.com).
The topics for discussion on the day will include:
- Obesity cardiomyopathy and the large heart
- Post mortem CT scan and heart disease
- Patterns of ischaemic heat disease
- Basics of congenital heart disease
- “What is it” cases
- Heart dissection for the autopsy exam and referring cases

here is the programme for the Cambridge meeting

AECVP Cambridge 2021 programme Final
here is a case from dr cordelia howitt
any insights pr people who have seen this before? …. please add your thoughts
We, in the UKCPN, have been quiet during the pandemic, but I suspect we should re-activate some educational activity.
I hope we can re-start these posts posts and cases with interest.
So, I shall kick-off with this pretty device found in a heart at autopsy.
The Association of European Cardiovascular Pathologists is hosting a meeting in Cambridge in September. Having been a member of this group for many years I can thoroughly recommend the meeting. This specialist meeting will be hybrid in format…. part on line/in person.
The UKCPN will hopefully host some sessions. The meeting is recommended for those missing a cardiac meeting this year.

So, after a long break we are looking to conduct this year’s EQA run. There are two levels of engagement; with those acting as cardiac reviewers being scored with feedback. Those who wish to just do the assessment for educational purposes will be able to see the slide material and do their own scoring.
If you have previously been involved then you should get the notification as standard. If you wish to see the slide material and have not previously been involved then please await the post shortly announcing the website link.
I have had several enquiries about whether the meeting is happening tomorrow. at present the answer is YES.
UK schools, libraries, transport system, colleges and so on are still open.
so, the meeting is still due to take place, unless the health authorities or government instruct this not to occur.
however, I am aware that some countries are restricting air/other travel
if you decide not to attend, please email me (email@example.com) to let me know, so I may adjust catering.
