Reducing complications after TAVI: part I - Pacemaker implantation

Chairpersons: N. Van Mieghem, T. Walther
React@PCR Moderator: M. Akodad

Summary

Access to the slides including the key messages delivered during PCR London Valves 2017 on the way to reduce the complications occuring after TAVI. This first part focus on pacemaker implantation and  in particular, on the atrioventricular conduction disturbance and the new technical approaches that would help in your routine practice.

Learning Objectives

  • To fully understand the implications of atrioventricular conduction disturbance and pacemaker implantation after TAVI
  • To identify ways to lower the incidence of pacemaker implantation in your routine clinical practice
  • To learn more about new technical approaches to reduce the need for pacemaker implantation

Presentations available when logged in:

  • Session objectives
  • Long-term implications of pacemaker implantation after TAVI and surgical aortic valve replacement
  • Atrioventricular conduction disturbances after TAVI – Prediction and prevention
  • New technical approaches to reduce the frequency of pacemaker implantation
