Overview

In this on-demand programme, a world-renowned faculty led by Programme Chair Prof José Luis Zamorano (University Complutense, Spain) and Scientific Director Dr Rebecca T Hahn (New York-Presbyterian / Columbia University Medical Center, US), explore tips, tricks and expert insight to optimise echocardiographic image acquisition strategies to support earlier diagnosis and improved patient outcomes.

 

Combining presentations and opinion from Dr Philippe Pibarot (Laval University, Canada), Prof Patrizio Lancellotti (University of Liège, Belgium), and Dr Martin Swaans (St Antonius Hospital Nieuwegein, the Netherlands), this programme addresses key issues including how to do an aortic valve echo, what to look for, how to interpret results; how to optimise a mitral valve echo; why doing tricuspid imaging is difficult, how to do a tricuspid valve echo (with various parameters) – and many more.

Series overview

Part 1

Welcome and Introduction

Chair Prof Juan Zamorano sets the scene for the programme, emphasing Valvular Heart Diseases as a re-emerging public health problem underpinned, in part, by the ageing demographic of the global population with increased live expectancy. There remain considerable unmet needs for treatment, particularly improved interventional therapies.

Part 2

Tips and Tricks in Imaging Your Patients with Tricuspid Regurgitation

Prof Patrizio Lancellotti explores Tricuspid Regurgitation, acknowledging the complex anatomy involved, the frequency of secondary TR and the overall prevalence with poor prognosis. The role of multimodality imaging is key, but there remains a need for percutaneous treatment options.

Part 3

Tips and Tricks in Imaging Your Patients with Mitral Regurgitation

Dr Swaans provides insight into imaging patients with Mitral Regurgitation, and – with the challenges of MR quantification – intra- and inter-observer viability remains high. With limitations for each method, an integrative approach is recommended.

Part 4

Tips and Tricks for Imaging your Patients with Aortic Stenosis

Dr Pibarot examines imaging for Aortic Stenosis, and discusses strategies to both avoid overestimation and – the more frequent – underestimation of AS severity, through measuring LVIT, calculating DVI, and multi-window CW Doppler interrogation.
