Stroke and TAVI

Chairpersons: N. Van Mieghem, O. Wendler

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the mechanism and timing of stroke in TAVI
  • To learn 'techniques' which could potentially prevent strokes during TAVI
  • To review the data supporting the use of filtration and deflection devices in preventing stroke during TAVI

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Epidemiology and timing of stroke during and after TAVI
  • Arrhythmias and optimal pharmacology during and after TAVI
  • Techniques during TAVI to potentially limit stroke
  • Filtration and deflection devices: can they help?
  • Histopathological insights from embolic debris captured during TAVI
