Overview

Severe tricuspid regurgitation is an urgent global healthcare challenge, affecting over 70 million individuals worldwide. The associated adverse outcomes and burdensome symptoms demand effective solutions. While surgical intervention and medical therapy have been the traditional approaches, a new era has dawned with transcatheter repair emerging as a game-changing option.

 

In this on-demand version of the live broadcast, join Prof Ralph Stephan von Bardeleben (Heart Valve Center, Mainz, DE) as he chairs a panel of distinguished experts in the field; Dr Paul Sorajja (Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis, US, Dr Ulrich Jorde (Montefiore Medical Center, New York, US), and Dr Gilbert Tang (Mount Sinai Health System, New York, US). Their collective expertise will illuminate the path towards identifying patients who will derive maximum benefit from repair-based approaches, surpassing the outcomes of surgery or medical therapy alone.

 

Stay at the forefront of innovation as these luminaries delve deep into the realm of tricuspid valve repair techniques. Uncover novel strategies, groundbreaking insights, and clinical data that will revolutionise your approach to patient care.
