Faculty: Rik De Decker, MD
Dr Rik De Decker has subspecialized in both paediatric cardiology and clinical genetics and thus provides a unique bridge between the two disciplines. He was also instrumental in setting up the cardiogenetic clinics at Red Cross Children's Hospital. He is the director of the cardiac catheterisation laboratory, and has developed CATHCHAT, a novel platform for the online learning and teaching of interventional catheterisation skills in children. As a clinician he was instrumental in broadening the paediatric cardiology outreach clinics to all of the regional hospitals in the Western Cape, thereby strengthening the ascertainment and follow-up of children with CHD.

As a generalist cardiologist he is involved in the management of children with heart disease, including the utilisation of advanced echocardiographic, catheterisation and other tertiary investigations to assess and prepare children for interventions such as cardiac surgery and interventional catheterisation.

He is also a clinical geneticist with an interest in the genetic aetiology of congenital heart disease and a focus on the detection of the syndromic associations of children with heart disease.

When not at work, he prefers to spend time in the wilder and steeper parts of the world.

CAREER DETAILS & EXPERIENCE

General Paediatrics

I have done general paediatrics in Abou El Reesh hospital (Cairo University Pediatric Hospital). This is the biggest teaching children hospital in Egypt with total bed capacity of 750 beds including five PICUs. It has got all the high technology equipment and it serves as a tertiary referral hospital for all of Egypt. I have finished extensive training starting as a resident and gained enormous experience from the heavy workload there.

I have also done general paediatrics as paediatric registrar in Alder Hey Children Hospital which is the biggest and oldest teaching children hospital in Europe.It is a tertiary referral hospital for all of the north west of England. I have done first on call for acute admissions as well as second on call for the inpatients. The job also included going on squads to transfer sick children from regional hospitals to the ICU in which I learnt how to stabilize critically ill children and transport medicine. I had rotating registrar post in Respiratory, endocrinology, gastroenterology and oncology.

Neonatology

I worked for 4 months in SCBU attached to the maternity in Cairo University Hospital, which receives 6000 deliveries per year. It had then 25 incubators with ventilatory facilities. I have done 6 months as SHO in neonates in Gravesend Hospital which is a peripheral hospital with 1500 deliveries per annum. I have done all neonatal procedures as neonatal lines, umbilical catheters, intercostal tubes and basic cranial sonography. I am now the head of neonatal cardiology unit.

Paediatric Cardiology Training

I have done around 17 years of  paediatric cardiology training. I have done both MSc and MD  thesis in cardiology. I have worked during my training for 6 years in paediatric cardiology in 3 different centers in England: Freeman hospital, Royal Manchester Children hospital (Pendelbury) and finally in Royal Liverpool Children hospital (Alder Hey). I spent most of the time in Alder Hey as SHO and then Specialist Registrar. The cardiology ward was 24 beds, cardiac ICU was joint with the general ICU and had12 cardiac beds. There were 400 paediatric cardiac surgeries per annum both open and closed and around 450 catheters per year mostly interventional. All activities are displayed on the hospital web site www.alderhey/cardiac.com .

Cairo University Paediatric Cardiology department is a tretiary referral unit for most of Egypt. The out patient clinics for all pediatric cardiology subspecialities.There are routine echo clinics daily with four up to date echocardiography machines. There is also echocardiography service to all ICUs, cath lab and cardiac theaters.
