Topics include open surgical and transcatheter aortic and pulmonary valve replacement, open surgical and transcatheter repair for patients with mitral valve regurgitation, gross anatomy of valvular heart pathology and comparison with anatomic evaluation using CT angiography. Risk assessment, anesthetic options, FDA approved treatments and investigational treatments will be discussed. Direct exposure to and discussion of actual patient cases will be afforded during the symposium.

NEW FOR THIS YEAR: 

Participate via live-stream ($40)

Submit a case for discussion in the afternoon session: Do you have an interesting case you would like to present? Bring your case highlighting management issues related to congenital or valvular heart disease.  Submit your case to J.
