Case based discussion on patients with valve disease with reference to the new ESC/EACTS guidelines

Learning objectives

  • To understand what is new in the 2012 ESC/EACTS guidelines on valve disease
  • To explain the decision making process in patients with valve disease 
  • To demonstrate the usefulness of the “Heart team” in the management of patients with valve disease
