What Is TVT?
Transcatheter valve therapy is a growing treatment option for patients with valvular heart disease and is at the core of TVT Connect.
The maturation of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and the rapid adoption of transcatheter mitral and tricuspid therapies have changed the landscape of the treatment of structural heart disease, and this virtual conference will reflect this evolution and expansion.
The modern integration of noninvasive cardiac imaging, surgical therapies, heart failure management, and novel transcatheter approaches makes the treatment of structural heart disease truly multidisciplinary, further emphasizing the importance of continuing education for professionals diagnosing and caring for those with complex valvular and structural heart disease.
TVT Connect is designed to provide a valuable learning experience for all members of the heart team from clinical practitioners, healthcare professionals, and academicians to engineers and scientists and everyone in between.
We welcome anyone interested in treating valvular and structural heart disease—including clinical cardiologists, cardiac imaging specialists (especially those focused on echo and CT), cardiac and vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists, heart failure specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, cath lab technologists, and members of the medical device community—to join us at TVT Connect this June.
By the end of this course, participants should be able to:
- Discuss the evaluation and management of patients with valvular and structural heart disease
- Assess the imaging modalities available for diagnosing valvular and structural heart disease
- Describe current and future therapeutic options for valvular and structural heart disease
- Understand the skills necessary to perform transcatheter valve therapies, left atrial appendage (LAA) closure, and patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure
