This symposium, part of Transcatheter Interventions Online 2023, and chaired by Prof David Hildick-Smith (Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, Brighton, UK), featured a panel discussion on the latest data on durability and clinical outcomes, an analysis of how TAVI is changing and possible future options for patients with aortic valve disease. The symposium also featured a minimalistic TAVI live case performed by Prof Stefan Toggweiler (Lucerne Cantonal Hospital, Lucerne, CH).


The live version of 'Lifetime Patient Management Greater Expectations: Is TAVI Rising to The Challenge?' was CME-accredited. This on-demand version is not.


This programme is supported by an unrestricted educational grant by Boston Scientific.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recall the latest data on durability and clinical outcomes for TAVI
  • Understand how TAVI is advancing and become aware of future treatment options for lifetime management of patients with aortic valve disease
  • Become more confident using TAVI in cases with complex anatomy

Target Audience

  • Interventional Cardiologists
  • Surgeons with an interest in transcatheter treatment strategies for coronary and structural heart disease
  • Interventional Cardiology Nurses
