Learning Objectives

  • Indication and results of minimally invasive mitral valve repair
  • Patient selection
  • Surgical repair techniques
  • Complications
  • Gain familiarity and knowledge in instrumental necessities for endoscopic mitral valve repair
  • Practice and learn the basic techniques in endoscopic surgery for mitral valve repair on high-fildelity simulators
  • Mitral valve repair using annuloplasty ring and neochords on high-fidelity simulators

Course Fee
EACTS Member: €495 inclusive of VAT
Non-Member: €595 inclusive of VAT

Fee includes course material, lunch and refreshments.

Specifics of the simulators

  • True simulated physical model of endoscopic port-access set-up whereby the operator can train from the basic technique to full complex repairs
  • Disposable mitral valves and papillary muscles that have been created out of material resembling the physical characteristics of connective tissue giving the operator true experience
  • Simulator can give feedback about the length and depth of each stich on mitral valve annulus with picture of each created stich. The operator can train his/her skills based on pre-set parameters of length and depth
