TAVI In Severe Bicuspid Aortic Valve Disease
An interactive live case collaboration between the Thoraxcenter, Erasmus MC and Interventional Cardiology Review.

This live stream is supported by:
Bicuspid aortic valve disease is currently a challenge for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). Bicuspid disease has so far been an exclusion criterion in randomized TAVI trials. Issues with severe bicuspid and TAVI include significant periprosthetic regurgitation and device malposition.
This live case will feature a mechanically expandable transcatheter heart valve with complete repositionability and a sealing skirt. These features will be discussed in the context of bicuspid valve disease treatment.
- Performing a TAVI implantation in a bicuspid valve
- Discussing specific valve features which impact outcomes
- Explaining implantation from A to Z
- Interventional cardiologists
- TAVI operators
- Nurses and technicians involved in structural heart programs
- Interventional cardiology fellows

Dr Nicolas M Van Mieghem obtained his medical degree and cardiology degree at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium. After subsequent fellowships in interventional cardiology in Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg Genk, Belgium, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, US and Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, he joined the department of interventional cardiology at the Thoraxcenter, Erasmus Medical Center, as a senior staff member in February 2010.
He is involved in the percutaneous coronary interventions and structural heart program. He obtained the degree of PhD based upon his research in transcatheter valve therapies. So far he has published and co-authored approximately 130 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.
Dr Van Mieghem is principle investigator and steering committee member in multiple ongoing international trials evaluating various coronary and transcatheter valve technologies. He is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology and is currently Medical Director of the department of Interventional cardiology at the Thoraxcenter.
