Created on 29 August 2017, the ESC Council on Valvular Heart Disease aims to be a multidisciplinary forum for the Heart Valve Team, to encourage research, knowledge exchange, teaching and other educational activities in regard with valvular heart disease.
Many of the valvular heart disease (VDH) patients (>10 million Europeans) do not receive a correct diagnosis and/or do not receive optimised care according to current guidelines. To fight against this, we need your help to reinforce the message given by the Council on Valvular Heart Disease, the aim of which is to promote training and education in VHD. Come join us in this adventure and become a member of the council.
