Symposium Overview

The New York Transcatheter Valves Symposium is poised to help healthcare professionals stay current on new and emerging approaches in the diagnosis, management and treatment of valvular and structural heart disease.

A robust agenda combines individual and collective opinions from field expert clinicians and scholars. The educational format will consist of live performance of trancatheter procedures with moderated discussion. The ambitious goal is to provide cardiovascular specialists with the education they need in order to improve patient outcomes and reduce morbidity and mortality related to structural heart and valvular disease. Emerging data and trial results in structural heart disease will be presented with expert opinions and debates.

Learning Objectives

  • Appraise new and upcoming technologies in the management of structural heart disease to determine their benefit for patients.
  • Compare the applications of cardiac CT and MRI in structural heart disease.
  • Explain indications, techniques, outcomes, and complications for transcatheter valve intervention in patients with native valve disease and bioprostectic valve dysfunction.
  • Examine best practice techniques for new heart valve implantation.
  • Evaluate the rationale, challenges, and necessity of the heart team approach to valvular heart disease, and the functionality of the team within a center of excellence.
