 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.
  Location:San Diego Marriott La Jolla      La Jolla, CA   USA
  Director(s):Matthew J. Price, MD, FACC, David S. Rubenson, MD, FACC, FASE, Michael Smith, MD, Phong Hu, MD, Curtiss Stinis, MD
  Sponsor:Scripps Health, SCAI, ACC, ASE
  Comments:After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:

•  Assemble the appropriate multidisciplinary team, imaging technologies and catheter equipment to perform structural heart disease interventions.
•  Identify complications of catheter-based therapies for structural heart disease and safely manage them with various procedural techniques.
•  Apply a comprehensive approach to the assessment of the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves, and the interatrial septum, using echocardiography (TTE, TEE and ICE), CT, and MRI for the purpose of the interventional treatment of these cardiac structures.
•  Interpret current clinical data in order to optimize the treatment of patients with aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation and atrial fibrillation.
•  Discuss tricuspid anatomy and function and assess the implications of tricuspid regurgitation and transcatheter techniques for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair.
•  Cite the current indications for catheter-based techniques, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter mitral valve repair/replacement, left atrial appendage closure, ASD, and paravalvular leaks.
•  Evaluate the patient with cryptogenic stroke and identify the patient in whom PFO closure is appropriate.
•  Integrate emerging data into TAVR decision-making regarding surgical risk, including low and intermediate-risk patients.
•  Interpret and incorporate CT imaging before and aft

  Meeting Type:Conference
  Description:Interventional Cardiology Conference
Welcome To CRT - iMPACT Your Practice
CRT is one of the world’s leading interventional cardiology conference. This conference will takes place in Washington, DC every year at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. CRT gives attendees a great opportunity to share ideas and knowledge, collaborate on interventional cardiology solutions, receive interventional cardiology training and network with other professionals. Our interventional cardiology conference features focused educational and training sessions that discuss new trial data, explore evidence-based research, and demonstrate the most up-to-date techniques that can be directly applied to clinical and academic practices.

With over 2,200 attendees, the CRT conference continues to be a leading boutique for endovascular and interventional cardiology meeting. MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute supports CRT as a forum for physician and health care professional education about new cardiovascular technology and interventional procedures in the field. This interventional cardiology training event consists of four value-packed days with keynotes, presentations, workshops, a symposia, poster session, and discussions with thought leaders in interventional cardiology and structural cardiology.
