PCR Tokyo Valves 2016

Join this TAVI-focused Course

This was the first edition of the new educational meeting for interventional practitioners interested in and committed to percutaneous valve interventions.

PCR Tokyo Valves 2016

PCR Tokyo Valves is the educational meeting for interventional practitioners interested in and committed to percutaneous valve interventions. Drawing equally on the PCR expertise in building patient-centred educational Courses and on the strong scientific prowess of the Japanese and Asian interventional communities, PCR Tokyo Valves aims to benefit all Valve Teams in the Asian region and the patients they serve.

TAVI procedures are becoming increasingly prevalent in the region but most data available today focuses on Western patients. Because it will shine a light on Asian patients, who present specific medical challenges, the Course is a unique opportunity for practitioners to enter a global conversation. Generating ideas, new studies and activity related to Asian patients will produce much-needed data, leading to future advances in the field for physicians all over.

The remarkable skill level in Japan, especially in performing TAVI procedures, and the great number of interventional practitioners in the country make it the right place in Asia to let this PCR initiative blossom.
