PRELIMINARY PROGRAM

DEVELOPED BY: Lars Søndergaard, Ole de Backer, Stefan Bertog & Victoria Delgado

This workshop will offer contemporary learning, education and interaction on the established position of TAVI in the treatment of severe aortic valve stenosis.

 

Case-based learning, interactive discussions and debates will help shape the key messages.

There will be 3 sessions focusing on:

(1) State-of-the-art TAVI: case-based learning;

(2) Challenging access for TAVI: case-based learning; and

(3) Life-time management of severe aortic valve stenosis

 

Join us at CSI Focus TAVI and stay on for the full 4-day program of CSI Frankfurt, featuring a wide array of topics in the field of congenital, structural and valvar heart disease interventions.

 

State-of-the-art TAVI: case-based learning
Welcome and learning objectives

Case presentation
•    76 years old female
•    Severe symptomatic aortic stenosis
•    Severely calcified tricuspid aortic valve
•    Pre-existing LBBB
•    PCI of LAD in the past
•    Low surgical risk

Procedural plan
Recorded case with stop-points
1. Stop point – vascular access and closure devices

2. Stop point – cerebral embolic protection

3. Cusp overlap view
4. Commissural alignment
5. Vascular closure and bail-out strategies
6. Conduction abnormalities after TAVI
7.  Early mobilization and discharge
Challenging access for TAVI: Case-based learning
Welcome and learning objectives
Case presentation and recorded case: lithotripsy

Case presentation and recorded case: orbital atherectomy

Panel discussion on facilitated transfemoral TAVI

Case presentation and recorded case: trans-caval

Panel discussion on trans-caval TAVI

Case presentation and recorded case: trans-carotid
Panel discussion on trans-carotid TAVI
Case presentation and recorded case: trans-axillary
Panel discussion on trans-axillary TAVI
Life-time management of aortic stenosis
Welcome and learning objectives
Case presentation: younger age, small annulus

Panel discussion: start the journey with SAVR or TAVI?

Considerations for SAVR in small aortic annuli (patient-prosthesis mismatch, durability, mortality)

How to avoid PPM after SAVR (root enlargement)

Long-term planning when choosing surgical bioprosthetic valve (risk of coronary obstruction, valve fracturing)
Considerations for THV-in-SAV (chimney stenting, leaflet modification, valve fracturing)
Durability of THVs (durability data on THVs)
Considerations for TAVR in small aortic annuli (THV design and hemodynamic)
Long-term planning when choosing transcatheter bioprosthetic valve
(surgical explant of THV, risk of coronary obstruction after THV-in-THV)
Considerations for THV-in-THV (neo-skirt height, leaflet overhang)
Panel discussion
Air embolism to the brain during TAVI - a relevant problem?
