Prof. Francine Leca, founder of the Association, offers you 5-minute videos to learn all about the functioning of the heart and cardiac malformations. Several themes will be addressed, illustrated and commented on; knowledge and experience that Prof. Leca wishes to share with you, as this approach to transmission has always been at the heart of her vision of medicine.

Francine Leca explains in video the heart malformations:

First a little word about the anatomy and physiology of the heart. Don't be frightened by these words! The heart is a simple organ, but you still need to know how it is made and how it works! We all studied it at school; I will give you a brief reminder.

Then we will see what is called anatomo-pathology, i.e. the "defects" that occurred before birth during the manufacture of this little heart.

From these anomalies you will easily understand what is wrong and how it manifests itself clinically.

Finally, of course, we will see the most frequent heart diseases, the ones whose names you hear over and over again without always understanding the ins and outs.

Let's start with the anatomy and physiology of the heart!

Guinea 2022 Mission

Return on our 1st mission in Guinea!

The Association organizes on average 4 to 6 missions abroad per year. Some are "follow-up missions", when we go to countries we have been to before, and others are "discovery missions", when we send a team to a country we have never been to before. This was the case for the mission to Guinea from November 25 to December 1, 2022.
