International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code

International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code

The International Society for Nomenclature of Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease (ISNPCHD) was constituted in Canada in January of 2005.

The original working component of the ISNPCHD was The International Working Group for Mapping and Coding of Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Nomenclature Working Group. By 2005, the Nomenclature Working Group crossmapped the nomenclature of the International Congenital Heart Surgery Nomenclature and Database Project of The European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery and The Society of Thoracic Surgeons with the European Paediatric Cardiac Code of the Association for European Paediatric Cardiology, and therefore created the International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code, (IPCCC), which is available for free download here.

On Monday July 9, 2007, the International Society for Nomenclature of Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease created two new committees so that the Society now has the following three committees:

  1. The International Working Group for Mapping and Coding of Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Nomenclature Working Group (NWG)
  2. The International Working Group for Defining the Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Definitions Working Group (DWG)
  3. The International Working Group for Archiving and Cataloguing the Images and Videos of the Nomenclatures for Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, also known as the Archiving Working Group (AWG).
