 Workshop day

 Schulungszentrum USZ  (click to enlarge)

Sunday – The Heart-Lab Campus: Share the experience, build the knowledge

The first day is traditionally dedicated to the Workshops: small groups gather in focused sessions run by the world key leaders in the field. This time the program features an unparalleled offering: we have prepared 20 workshops to cover the most hot topics. All workshops are interactive with hands-on activities and a clearly defined learning objective. Join one or more workshops to learn the techniques, advance your anatomical knowledge, interact with the experts in small groups. The workshop day is specifically designed to fill the knowledge gaps of the rapidly evolving field of structural interventions. Cross-training and networking are key element for a successful learning experience.

 Mitral day

 ETH Zurich  (click to enlarge)

The second day is this year dedicated to valve repair: while many replacement technologies are being evolved, valve repair remains the main solution for patients: surgical repair of DMR remains gold standard in low risk patients, while higher risk patients have several percutaneous options. In FMR transcatheter repair has became standard in many institutions, and it is time to evaluate its role in the management of heart failure patients. The program is designed to be case-based, with live cases and plenty of time for interactive discussions. Through all the day, live-in-a-box technology demonstration and technology breaking news will animate the sessions and bring new light in the field.

 Mitral and tricuspid day

 ETH Zurich  (click to enlarge)

The third and final day is again this year dedicated to the “no-more-forgotten” tricuspid valve. Many open issues remain to be discussed, diagnosing, the disease, quantification of regurgitation, patient selection, therapy development, intraprocedural imaging, prognostic impact of the intervention. The tricuspid program is also designed to be case-based, with live cases and enough of time for interactive discussions. With a great final, confronting the opinions on a challenging topic.
