Sizing and imaging training

Description

This two-day program consists of a first day focused on practising sizing, followed by a second day of lectures.

Attendance is limited to small groups of physicians in order to provide each participant the opportunity to meaningfully and actively engage with the faculty and practise on a sizing station.

Participants in this program will have the opportunity to:

  • Get a clear overview of the key features to size the aortic valve 
  • Discuss and debate patient selection, contraindication, and pre- and post-case procedures
  • Gain a thorough understanding of pre-operative imaging and TAVI prosthesis sizing
  • Share best practices for TAVI sizing and imaging
  • Practise on sizing station and discuss TAVI case studies with experts in sizing faculty

AUDIENCE

Physicians and members of the TAVI team, highly motivated to acquire additional knowledge and skills in pre-procedure imaging and sizing who want to be autonomic in sizing.


OBJECTIVE

By the end of the program, participants will be able to:

  • Correctly size the valve using the latest imaging technique
  • Leverage latest imaging techniques in order to identify optimal vascular access via precise anatomical and pathological patient analysis
  • Reach proficiency in performing effective and efficient implant procedure
