THE CONFERENCE

Traditionally, valvular heart disease has been treated with surgical repair or replacement. Over the last several years, however, there have been important advances in concepts, tools, techniques, and patient selection in the treatment of valvular heart disease using nonsurgical procedures.

Transcatheter valve intervention offers the potential to reduce the procedural morbidity, mortality, and cost of surgical valve replacement or repair while also accelerating patient recovery.
