Children’s Heart Awareness Day

By News

On 5th of May, it is Children’s Heart Awareness Day in Switzerland. As a Swiss/American company, we want to mark this day to remember when most heart journeys begin: during infancy and childhood.

In Switzerland, a child is born with a heart defect every hundred births.  Although some heart defects resolve over time, more severe ones may require interventions, in childhood and later in life.

We are very mindful of our purpose, to help find better solutions for children and adults born with atrial septal defects. With our work, we endeavour to ease their heart journey, to help reduce the need for interventions and to keep more treatment options open for their future.
