Aortic 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 aortic 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:

  • Recognize the impact, differences in symptom presentation, and clinical significance of aortic stenosis in women.
  • Apply current guidelines and recommend best practices for aortic valve disease in clinical practice
  • Recognize challenges in hemodynamic assessment of aortic valve disease and assess strengths and limitations of various assessment modalities
  • Navigate management and ethical dilemmas in the management of elderly and highly medically complex patients with aortic valve disease
  • Summarize the emerging innovations in technologies for TAVR along with results in clinical trials and describe their potential implications for clinical practice.
  • Discuss the risks and management of post interventional complication

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.
