The Advanced TAVR Symposium: New Perspectives for the Surgeon and Heart Team is designed to provide cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists, and other members of the heart team with an in-depth understanding of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and the dramatic progress in research and techniques in the past 2 years.
This half-day, online course will provide advanced perspectives and concepts, including how to stay relevant in the aortic space, state-of-the-art TAVR implantation and explantation techniques, and managing controversial patient populations. The symposium will feature didactic sessions, case-based presentations, and live discussion and Q&A. The distinguished, multidisciplinary faculty includes the most experienced operators and opinion leaders in the field.

Cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists, physician assistants, and nurses, as well as residents and fellows in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, and interventional cardiology
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the current landscape of TAVR in low-risk groups, valve-in-valve TAVR, and bicuspid aortic valve.
- Compare different techniques used for TAVR explant and apply them to daily practice while relying on supporting data.
- Analyze key state-of-the-art data presented and elaborate on their impact on clinical practice.
