TAVI (Transcatheter aortic valve implantation)

Here you will find all the latest content on transcatheter aortic valve implantations (TAVI) published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order. TAVI, now an established, valid treatment for patients presenting with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis, has proven to be superior to medical treatment for inoperable patients whilst being a valid alternative to surgery in select, high-risk patients. This topic covers the newest devices and emerging data in TAVI as well as information on tools, devices and techniques such as vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography, understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.

Other valvular and structural interventions

Here you will find all the latest content on diverse topics within the theme of other valvular and structural interventions such as paravalvular leak published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Understanding and treating complications that might arise in valvular and structural interventions such as paravalvular leak after implantation of prosthetic valves is important. Information on determining the scope of this complication, it’s potential closure, along with other critical topics in this field can be found in this section.

Tricuspid / Pulmonary valve

Here you will find all the latest content on the tricuspid or pulmonary valve published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.

Endovascular treatments for complications of the tricuspid or pulmonary valve, such as the treatment for tricuspid regurgitation (TR), are at an early stage of clinical development with many novel devices being introduced each year. This topic explores the different parameters of this emerging field with information on the latest research, emerging tools, devices and techniques, vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography as well as understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.

Mitral valve replacement and repair

Here you will find all the latest content on mitral valve replacement and repair published on this website. Results are listed in chronological order.Building on the years of experience with TAVI, mitral valve replacement and repair is now beginning to take-off with a vast array of new techniques and options. Certain devices, for instance in mitral repair, are now widely used. To understand this complex field a knowledge and mastery is required covering the latest research, emerging tools, devices and techniques, vascular access; the role of adjunctive pharmacotherapy; imaging techniques such as echocardiography as well as understanding bleeding risks or patient selection.
