This complimentary dinner symposium will provide a contemporary overview of structural heart interventions in a case-based interactive format. It also describes the remaining unmet needs in the field and outlines a futuristic outlook of management of valvular heart diseases. The emerging role of artificial intelligence in the diagnosis and management of structural heart diseases will be discussed in a special opening lecture. Additional special sessions will feature open and constructive debates on the utility of intracardiac echocardiography and invasive hemodynamics in guiding modern structural heart interventions.
Upon completion of this symposium, participants should be able to:
- understand the potential utility of artificial intelligence in the diagnosis and treatment of structural heart diseases
- recognize the current and emerging innovative transcatheter therapies for tricuspid and mitral valve regurgitation
- discuss the strengths and limitations of intracardiac imaging and invasive hemodynamics in guiding structural heart interventions
- describe effective strategies for management of unusual structural heart problems
This symposium is designed for cardiologists, internists, cardiovascular fellows, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and specialists caring for patients with cardiovascular disease.
