12 - 13 April 2019, Dubai, UAE
Dr. Francesco Bedogni, Head of Cardiology, Interventional and Coronary Units, I.R.C.C.S Policlinico San Donato, Milan, Italy
The course is focused on valve replacement techniques and procedures, mainly on TAVI and Mitraclip. The program features all the important topics spanning from patient selection to post-procedural care and patient follow up, with a deep focus on techniques and interventional procedures. After discussing appropriate diagnosis of severe aortic stenosis in all its different forms, a strong emphasis will be placed on pre-procedural planning and assessment and evaluation and the optimal device selection for different patient specific anatomies. Major topics of the program include Vascular access (angio and echo guided), Evolut R / Evolut PRO implantation techniques, Access closure devices, Prevention of vascular complication, Prevention of TAVR complication and specific clinical and anatomical settings (i.e. small, tortuous, diseased peripheral arteries; tortuous, Porcelain aorta; horizontal aorta, heavy calcifications: diffuse, aortic valve, left ventricle outflow tract, pure aortic regurgitation (AR), valve in valve for degenerated surgical bio-prostheses (ViV); low ejection fraction/severe hypertrophy).
