Working Group on Valvular Heart Disease. Discover your benefits and join us!
Exciting times ahead! Advances in imaging techniques, newly available percutaneous treatments, emphasis on the role of the Heart Team, and a growing pool of patients due to the ageing population mean that Valvular Heart Disease is at the centre of developments in Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery. Challenges in patient management highlight the need for multidisciplinary expertise in this exciting and rapidly evolving field.All physicians, interventionists, surgeons and scientists involved in the study or management of valvular heart disease are invited to join the Working Group and participate in its growing range of activities.Prof. Luc A. Pierard, FESC, (Belgium)Chairperson 2016-2018
The Working Group enjoys its collaboration with the European Society of Echocardiography and the International Society of Cardiovascular Infectious Disease.
Activities in recent years include completion of the EuroHeart Survey on Valvular Heart Disease, the development of European Guidelines for the Management of Valvular Heart Disease and Follow Up after Heart Valve Surgery, a successful teaching programme at The European Heart House, several popular national conferences and a proposed programme of collaborative research.
The Working Group makes a major contribution to the organisation of the ESC Annual Congress, contributes to the EUROECHO programme and fosters the promotion of research, training, and good clinical practice in the field of Valvular Heart Disease.
