Join us in New York City for A Case Based Approach to Mastering the Mitral Valve:
Imaging, Innovation, and Intervention

Mitral valve assessment, diagnosis, and treatment are rapidly evolving disciplines highlighted by innovations in techniques, devices, and imaging. These developments have altered the clinical practice framework for approaching mitral disease quantification and treatments resulting in some confusion regarding the best management strategies. Further, the volume and complexity of the published data make it difficult for busy practitioners to remain up to date on their knowledge and practice. This educational activity will provide key insights into how to achieve excellent outcomes through best practice management and the selection and execution of surgical and interventional techniques.

By attending, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret recent updates to guidelines and recommended best practices for the management of mitral valve disease
  • Apply the use of multimodality imaging to assess and manage patients with mitral valve disease
  • Discuss the most up-to-date evidence on mitral valve interventions and apply the data to specific patient populations with mitral valve disease
  • Describe the natural history of mitral disease, diagnostic imaging, and treatment modalities in the lifelong management of valvular heart disease
  • Recognize the importance of diagnosing and managing patients with tricuspid regurgitation
  • Discuss the difficulties in managing patients with severe calcific mitral disease
  • Employ strategies in managing anticoagulation in patients with valvular heart disease
  • Recognize the dilemmas in managing nonagenarian patients presenting with mitral disease

Who Should Attend?

This course is intended for cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, internists, nurses, physician assistants, and all health care professionals involved in the evaluation, diagnosis and/or management of patients.
