Aortic Stenosis and Treatment with TAVR/SAVR
Aortic stenosis is one of the most common heart valve diseases encountered in clinical practice. New insights into the pathophysiology of patients with aortic stenosis, coupled with advances in imaging and interventions, are fueling interest in the management of this disease.
Please join us to hear Dr. Patrick T. O’Gara, a world-renowned speaker and a luminary in the field of cardiology and interventional and valvular heart disease, discuss the natural history of aortic stenosis and the evidence behind current guideline recommendations on strategies to optimize the timing and treatment modalities in the management of aortic stenosis.
Cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, echocardiographers, pulmonologists, hematologists, general internists, primary care physicians, intensivists, emergency medicine physicians, hospitalists, respiratory therapists (direct delivery), nurses, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians and other interested healthcare providers.
- Analyze the natural history of aortic stenosis and determine appropriate timing of valve interventions.
- Compare outcomes of TAVR vs. surgical AVR (SAVR).
- Analyze and assess situations in which SAVR might be preferred over TAVR.
