The treatment of failing prosthetic valves: Imaging considerations

Learning Objectives

  • To understand more about the Imaging assessment of a failing bio-prosthetic valve
  • To learn how Imaging can influence device selection for valve-in-valve and valve-in-ring procedures
  • To appreciate how Imaging can guide the selection & performance of interventional treatment options

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Assessment of the failing prosthetic valve (1): stenosis & patient-prosthesis mismatch
  • Assessment of the failing prosthetic valve (2): diagnosis & quantitation of paraprosthetic leaks
  • Valve-in-valve & valve-in-ring procedures: which valve & which size?
  • Imaging for valve-in-valve procedures: is fluoroscopy sufficient?
