In the first video from the Transcatheter Mitral Valve Implantation (TMVI) Round Table Discussion, the assembled panel of internationally-recognised opinion leaders discuss the Role of Mitral Surgery.
Designed to support the continuous education of practicing physicians, this session shares leading opinion and addresses the following questions and key educational objectives:
- Mitral Valve Anatomy
- Mitral valve surgery (repair, replacement, annuloplasty)
- Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery
- Surgical outcome figures
- Who is not amenable to surgery?
This educational activity is intended for an international audience of interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and heart failure specialists. It would also be of benefit to cardiologists looking to increase their knowledge on this novel area of cardiovascular intervention.
