PCR Valve Atlas app

Clinical Atlas of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Therapies

Built by a distinguished group of International Experts, the PCR Valve Atlas app (Clinical Atlas of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Therapies) is an educational tool which embraces all facets of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Therapies and fully enhanced with multimedia content.

Introduction to the PCR Valve Atlas application

This application is an educational tool which embraces all facets of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Therapies. The target readership: novice operators in this field as well as intermediate and advanced operators.

What is the PCR Valve Atlas app?

The PCR Valve Atlas is the new comprehensive visual reference for TAVI procedures. It is a true practical aid not only in the ease of use for the reader but also in its educational content and application in the clinical practice, with an emphasis on illustrative information, in both moving and still imagery, and audio commentar. Dynamic and interactive application with multiple functionalities.

The application begins with specially developed anatomical lessons of the Aortic Valvular Complex and moves further into detailed imaging modalities employed for patient and also device selection. All current valve devices are described and illustrated with coronary angiograms and accompanied with novel 3D phantom models. Complications arising peri- and post-procedure are presented with a particular emphasis on the mechanisms and treatment options of each complication. Growing interest in valve-in-valve therapies and the accessories for implantations are also presented.
