Transcatheter mitral valve intervention – Opportunities and challenges

Chairpersons: G. Nickenig, J. Webb
React@PCR moderator: T. Patterson

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the relevance of various mitral valve pathologies to surgical and structural interventions
  • To learn what are the important imaging aspects of the mitral valve to both surgeons and interventionalists
  • To understand how to measure risk in mitral valve surgery
  • To learn the pros and cons of transcatheter mitral valve repair and replacement
  • To watch a recorded case of transcatheter mitral valve implantation

Presentations available when logged in:

  • The spectrum of mitral valve pathologies: relevance for surgical and structural interventions
  • Imaging the mitral valve: what is important for the interventional cardiologist and surgeon?
  • Mitral valve surgery: which patients face higher operative risks and therefore may be ideal candidates for transcatheter mitral valve treatment?
  • What are the challenges of transcatheter MV repair and its future?
  • Case based LIVE demonstration: transcatheter mitral valve implantation: Fortis
  • Case based LIVE demonstration: transcatheter mitral valve implantation: Tiara
