This Breakout, held at Transcatheter Interventions Online 2024, discovers the concept of sensor-guided TAVI interventions using a dedicated LV-pacing guidewire designed to deliver efficient, predictable outcomes. Explore the potential benefits of continuous pressure gradient measurements, understand their impact on TAVI workflow enhancements and how continuous pressure gradient monitoring can shape clinical decision-making in specific settings during TAVI procedures. 


Join an enlightening session where the faculty will uncover the latest advancements in TAVI interventions and their implications for patient care.


This breakout is supported by OpSens Medical.

Nicolas M Van Mieghem

Nicolas M Van Mieghem

Medical Director

Prof Nicolas Maria Van Mieghem is an Interventional cardiologist at Thoraxcenter, Erasmus MC, Rotterdam, NL decided to pursue a career that would help others. “I enjoy the feeling of being able to help someone or do something important for them". His father was a general cardiologist and one of his biggest influences early in his career.

Prof Van Mieghem initially intended to train as a cardiac surgeon but decided to specialise in interventional cardiology instead, following advice from a mentor. This decision was cemented when he read the first-in-human case report of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in Circulation by Alain Cribier in 2002. Prof Van Mieghem believes that great cardiologist genuinely cares for their patients. He names Gary Roubin, Dr Manu Malbrain and Professor Patrick Serruys among his mentors. 

His current research focuses on cerebral embolic protection during TAVI and the search for improved…
