Course Format
Live surgical cases, presentations led by keynote international faculty, scientific debate, dynamic research, and video & abstract presentations

Course Overview
Bringing together the different schools in aortic valve repair, the Summit will cover all aspects of the disease including medical therapy, imaging, patient selection and surgical techniques focused on patient outcomes. The aim is to integrate state-of-the-art into daily practice and to challenge current knowledge through high level scientific debates on the main topics of aortic valve repair. The programme will also provide an in-depth overview of aortic valve repair from valve-sparing root replacement to isolated aortic valve repair for tricuspid, bicuspid and unicuspid valves

Target Audience
Cardiac surgeons, echocardiographers (cardiologists and anaesthesiologists), radiologists and advanced residents interested in the field of valve repair who are encouraged to present their scientific work in abstract presentations

Learning Objectives
To showcase the latest techniques in aortic valve repair, participate in conversation, share experiences and help raise better medical evidence to clarify the place of repair versus replacement in aortic valve surgery
