E Lansac, Paris
Members: €550 inclusive of 20% FR VAT
Non-Members: €650 inclusive of 20% FR VAT
Dinner (Thur 23 March) optional: €75 inclusive of 20% FR VAT
Wetlab (Fri 24 March) optional: €60 inclusive of 20% FR VAT – (Hepatitis B vaccination is required for the wetlab. It is the responsibility of each participant to verify their vaccination status)
The programme will provide in-depth training of aortic valve
repair from valve sparing root replacement to isolated aortic
valve repair for tricuspid, bicuspid and unicuspid valve. The
aim is to integrate state-of-the-art into daily practice as well
as to challenge current knowledge through lectures from our
international faculty, live surgeries and an optional wetlab.
Cardiac surgeons and advance residents, echo cardiographers
(cardiologists and anaesthesiologists). Heart team consisting of surgeons and echographers is encouraged.
- Identifying good candidates for aortic valve repair.
- Learning the surgical steps for a reproducible repair from valve sparing root replacement and aortic valve repair surgery.
- Management of specific situations or failures.
- Setting up of a network with colleagues for an active aortic valve repair programme.
- Setting up an evaluation of the results (implementation of database or participation to existing registries).
