2nd North American Aortic Valve Repair Symposium
September 9-10, 2016
Philadelphia, PA

The purpose of this activity is to provide in-depth analysis and procedural understanding of both bicuspid and 3-cusp aortic valve repair and valve sparing aortic root surgery. Additionally, this symposium will provide technical and conceptual pearls related to aortic valve repair. Faculty presentations will constitute deep-dive sessions addressing valvular and aortic root pathology in the context of aortic valve preservation, with discussion panels focusing on the technical nuances and detailed differences in aortic valve repair and valve sparing aortic root techniques. Live-on tape sessions will be complemented with comprehensive didactic coverage of the clinical, technical, and imaging tools required to develop a successful aortic valve repair program. This symposium is especially designed for cardiovascular surgeons, cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists, residents and fellows with an interest in aortic valve repair.

Washington, DC

The conference addresses the unique physiology, operations, procedures, and potential complications of CVT patients. Latest management strategies for challenging clinical problems will be presented and current controversies discussed. Experts and world authorities will focus on the latest concepts, technology, management protocols, and clinical experience in their specialties. The program includes faculty presentations, abstract-based scientific sessions, symposia regarding major issues, audience-panel discussions and workshops. Approaches and specific protocols will be related to clinical data, so that participants can structure their clinical practice on evidence-based medicine.
