Echocardiography and Noninvasive Vascular Testing Lecture Series: Aortic Regurgitation: What Should I Look for Before Sending My Patients for Surgery?

September 29, 2022

Aortic valve (AV) repair is the preferred surgical treatment for young patients with aortic regurgitation; however, this surgical option is still underused in clinical practice. This emphasizes the need to build a heart team dedicated to AV repair with expert surgeons and echocardiographers.

Join us to hear Elliott J. Elias, M.D., as he discusses the need for a standardized preoperative imaging protocol to fulfill surgeons’ needs in providing a road map and predicting techniques to be used for an effective and durable repair.

Target Audience

Cardiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, echocardiography and noninvasive vascular testing specialists, nurses, sonographers, pharmacists, respiratory therapists.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the pathophysiology and hemodynamics of aortic regurgitation.
