A new interactive format where you play a pivotal role in solving complex cases.


Radcliffe Cardiology – in association with Edwards Lifesciences and Antares Interactive Digital – is delighted to present this innovative educational broadcast In the context of lifetime management.

Bringing together a faculty of international standing, this interactive event aims to best illustrate the challenges encountered and treatment strategies available to interventional cardiologists and the wider Heart Team in the management of the condition.

Delivered in two distinct sections, part one will address selecting the first mode of intervention according to the latest ESC/EACTS Guidelines; the second part will focus on post-TAVI follow-up assessing the potential need for reintervention.

The broadcast has been carefully curated to position audience opinion and interaction at its core – attendees are invited to explore these pertinent topics through reviewing two intriguing and complex cases posted on the broadcast’s Interactive Case Explorer. The Case Explorer has been split into 2 parts, Part 1: TAVI vs. SAVR and Part 2: Post TAVI follow-up, each Explorer referring to each part of the broadcast. These will form the basis for expert panel discussion and analysis.

Chair Dr Victoria Delgado (Barcelona, ES) will be joined by Prof Martine Gilard (Brest, FR), Prof Jan-Malte Sinning (Cologne, DE), Dr Radoslaw Parma (Silesia, PL), Prof Philippe Pibarot (Québec, CA), Prof Anne Bernard (Tours, FR) and Prof David Wood (Vancouver, CA) for what promises to be a truly unique best-in-class virtual broadcast.
