 Seventh Annual Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging
  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Transcatheter structural heart disease intervention is a rapidly growing part of clinical care in adult cardiology. Experts expect structural heart disease procedures to grow by as much as 30% in the next decade. Interventionists will need to be skilled in many more procedures than in the past. These procedures require the application of new interventional techniques while integrating imaging before and during treatment. This is an increasingly complex process that relies on systematic and effective collaboration between cardiovascular imaging specialists and interventionists, among others.

Scripps’ Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging conference is designed to provide a practical, cutting-edge, and case-based assessment of the emerging area of structural heart disease intervention and interventional cardiovascular imaging, with an emphasis on the collaborative nature of these procedures across many disciplines within cardiology. The expert faculty will include interventionists, invasive cardiologists, echocardiographers, electrophysiologists, cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and sonographers. Faculty will discuss clinical guidelines on patient selection, pre-procedural assessment, procedural tips, techniques and challenges (including concurrent imaging) dduring the performance of the procedures and conclude with assessment of outcomes and future directions.
