Contemporary Management of Valvular Disease: Diagnosis, Imaging and Intervention
Hosted by Cleveland Clinic: The diagnosis, imaging, and treatment of heart valve disease is constantly evolving, highlighted by innovations in techniques, devices, and imaging. In addition, research studies and clinical trials are continually expanding the evidence base related to patient assessment and treatment outcomes from valve interventions, both transcatheter- and surgically implanted devices. These developments, in turn, have altered the clinical practice framework for approaching both mitral and aortic valve disease quantification and treatments resulting in some confusion regarding the optimal management strategies. As the research continues, the volume and complexity of the data being generated make it difficult for busy practitioners to remain up to date on their knowledge and practices. As a result, some patients with valve disease may receive less than optimal care. This program is designed to bring together cardiologists, surgeons and other healthcare providers to review and analyze new research and technical advances and assesses their potential impact on clinical practice.
