Course Description

We invite you to join us for the Virtual 23rd Valve Disease, Structural Interventions, and Diastology/Imaging Summit which will focus on mitral, aortic and tricuspid valve diseases. The latest advances in structural interventions, percutaneous mitral repair, valve-in-valve procedures and LAA occluder devices will be addressed as well as the evaluation and management of diastolic dysfunction and a focused session on myocardial and pericardial diseases.

This course will provide an opportunity to receive updates in new and emerging topics from basic to advanced imaging techniques including 3-D echocardiography, strain imaging, Interventional echo as well as MRI/CT.
New this year, there will be leading experts on valve, structural intervention and imaging that will be discussants for these topics

Learning Objectives

  • Apply echocardiography to diagnose the severity, mechanism, etiology, and hemodynamic impact of the many types of valve disease, including mitral regurgitation, aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation and tricuspid valve disorders
  • Assess the most recent innovations in structural interventions and describe their clinical use
  • Identify indications and outcomes for new generation left atrial appendage closure (LAAC) devices
  • Describe clinical methods to diagnose diastolic dysfunction and manage disorders such as cardiac amyloidosis, complicated pericarditis, and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Discuss multimodality imaging techniques, including 3-D echocardiography, strain imaging, MRI/CT, as well as contrast echo
  • Translate new guideline criteria on imaging into current decision-making regarding structural valve interventions, medical treatment, and surgical valve repair/replacement
