Course Description

New developments and advances in the management of structural heart diseases, such as transcatheter aortic and mitral valve replacement, surgical and transcatheter aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve repair, closure of patent foramen ovale and ASD, and left atrial appendage occlusion afford benefits to patients who suffer from these conditions. It is difficult for frontline providers to keep abreast of changes in new innovative therapeutic procedures, diagnostic methods and innovative technologies.

This one-day program is designed to provide clinicians with a review of selected topics in present day management of patients with structural diseases, emphasizing new innovation in the field, role of echo in clinical practice and guidance for structural heart interventions, and incorporating current guideline and evidence-based principles of practice. Expert faculty will discuss patient selection, screening, and management of mitral, aortic, and tricuspid valve disease, left atrial appendage closure, and patent foramen ovale/ASD closure.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the role of echo in quantification of valvular heart disease.
  • Discuss indications for catheter-based therapies, including transcatheter aortic and mitral valve replacement , surgical and transcatheter aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve repair, closure of patent foramen ovale and ASD, transcatheter repair of paravalvular leak and left atrial appendage occlusion
  • Optimize selection of imaging modalities to aid in patient selection, clinical decision making, and guidance of procedures for patients with structural heart disease
  • Describe the multimodality imaging required for these procedures, including pre-procedural evaluation, patient selection, online guidance, and postprocedual follow-up
  • Identify complications of catheter-based therapies for structural heart disease using multimodality imaging techniques and safely manage these complications with various procedural techniques
