Program Overview
Cardiac surgery is undergoing a significant paradigm shift toward increasing minimal access surgery within all subspecialty areas of practice. These include interventions for cardiac valve repair, coronary revascularization, ablation of atrial fibrillation, aortic pathology and heart failure. Training in these minimally invasive techniques is important to better serve patients, improve outcomes and maintain a competitive advantage. The goal of this conference is to provide up-to-date evidence-based didactic lectures along with expert-instructed hands-on exposure to the latest in all aspects of minimal access cardiac surgery with an emphasis on hybrid approaches.
 
Target Audience
Cardiovascular surgeons, interventional cardiologists, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and hospital administrators in the cardiovascular specialties.
 
Educational Objectives
  • Distinguish between open cardiac surgical techniques and minimal access cardiac surgical techniques
  • Apply some of the latest techniques for cardiac valve repair, coronary revascularization
  • Describe the most up-to-date evidence-based information of minimal access cardiac surgery with an emphasis on hybrid approaches
