The foundational Course for Valve Interventions in Greater China

 
PCR-CIT China Chengdu Valves is organised based on the successful experience of PCR London Valves, under the theme of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). This educational meeting focuses on basic skill training through hands-on practice, live demonstrations, academic lectures and case-based discussions.

Transcatheter valve therapy has evolved as an established field in clinical practice, with proved effectiveness of improving survival and quality of life in patients deemed inoperable or at high risk for surgical valve replacement. Over the past twenty years, PCR has been helping the cardiovascular community to share knowledge, experience and practice; they have successfully guided and promoted transcatheter valve therapy stretching from Europe to the West. However, the development of transcatheter valve therapy is still at its preliminary stage in mainland China and the Asia-Pacific region.

The PCCV course helps improve the hability of doctors in China and the Asia-Pacific region to use this technology and hopefully promote its development for the benefits of the patients.

Goals and Objectives

The primary objectives of the PCCV Course are:

  • providing practical training on transcatheter heart valve therapy, especially transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), in mainland China and the Asia-Pacific region
  • teaching physicians to use this technology, or strenghten their knowledge for the benefit of patients in the region
  • establishing an interactive academic exchange platform between Asian and Western physicians

 
In the next few years, the Course aims at being recognised internationally as the highest academic and educational conference on TAVI in the Asia-Pacific region.

Who should attend?

The PCCV Course is designed for cardiologists who are planning to initiate TAVI projects in their institutions or who have been dedicated to this field.

Nevertheless, any doctor interested in TAVI and wanting to learn the procedure and/or stay up to date concerning the latest advances, is welcome to attend this educational meeting.
