Percutaneous treatment of valvular heart disease is one of the fastest developing areas in cardiology and an array of new techniques and options for mitral valve repair and replacement have become available in recent years. To master this complex field, in-depth knowledge of the latest research, emerging tools, devices and techniques is essential.

CSI Focus: Mitral Valve Interventions will begin with a look at mitral valve intervention in mitral valve stenosis, including intervention for rheumatic mitral stenosis as well as valve in mitral annular calcification. We will then discuss the increasing number of transcatheter mitral leaflet repair techniques, including the latest data, available devices, their indications for use and how they may be implanted. Next the increasing number of transcatheter mitral valve replacement techniques will be explored, with an update in the growing experience of valve in valve and valve in ring approaches as well as the new valve in native valve technologies. 

Join us for one day to attend the Mitral valve interventions workshop or you could also take advantage of the opportunity to stay for the full 4-day congress.


Invited speakers: Thomas Modine, Sameer Gafoor, Ralph Stephan von Bardeleben, Vinod Thourani, Eberhard Grube, Danny Dvir, Lenard Conradi, Scott Lim, Stefan Baldus, Shuki Porath, Kolja Sievert, Azeem Latib, Ulrich Jorde & Jeroen Bax
