Valvular heart diseases represent an important proportion of cardiac pathologies in the clinical setting.
They can involve one singular valve, mainly mitral and aortic, or several valves in the mean time.
Management of patients with valvular heart disease involves pharmacological therapy but in particular cardiac surgery which includes both correction and replacement (valvular prosthesis) interventions. In the recent years, along these procedures, the great technological advancement has highlighted percutaneous (both corrective or replacement) procedures which can be performed in the cath labs, with obvious advantages in high-risk patients.
In this panorama, transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography deserves a central role, for selecting adequately the patients for different procedures and techniques, for preparing patients to different interventions, for guiding procedures, evaluating results and follow patients during years. For this scope, the standard, traditional echocardiographic technique can be effectively helped by the more advanced ultrasound tools corresponding to real-time three-dimensional echocardiography and speckle tracking echocardiography.

The venue: Hotel Continental, Naples, Italy
