The AATS Mitral Conclave Workshop Boston will focus on technical aspects of mitral valve repair and replacement in a variety of complex anatomic and patient settings. The world’s leading experts in mitral valve disease will provide key insights into how to achieve excellent outcomes through best practice management and the selection and execution of surgical and interventional techniques.
- Shake hands with experts in your field and have meaningful conversations face-to-face;
- Learn best practice decision making according to mitral valve etiology and degree of valve dysfunction;
- Have access to world mitral leaders and learn their latest techniques and strategies;
- Recognize mitral complications and how to best deal with them;
- Identify patient eligibility, application, and limitations of catheter-based methods.
