Cardiology Series - Intro to the percutaneous treatment of aortic valve disease

Event Place: Online Meeting | Event Specialty: Cardiology | Event Duration: 60 min.

This talk will discuss the pathophysiology of aortic valve disease and available treatments for this. It will provide the background behind the development of transcatheter aortic valve implantation as a technique to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis in high risk surgical patients. We will also discuss the infrastructure required for the development of a successful transcatheter programme with future talks concentrating on valve technology, techniques and trial data.
