Ok, got it
We are delighted to report another successful Eurovalve Congress held in Palermo under the leadership and with the participation of several ESC Council on Valvular Heart Disease Nucleus members.
The Congress covered contemporary topics of valve disease in lectures, talks, expert-panel discussions of advances and controversies, clinical case presentations, “meet the expert” sessions, transmission of live cases and “live in a box”.
The Congress encourages interaction and involvement of the audience for a meaningful and enjoyable learning experience. This year, the Congress began with a spotlight symposium on the new ESC / EACTS Valvular Guidelines for the Management of Valvular Heart Disease.
The keynote lecture addressed Valvular Heart Failure. There were flash-news on atrial fibrillation and on the HAVEC Registry. Advances on imaging and on both transcatheter and surgical intervention on the aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve were presented and discussed. There were also joint sessions with the Italian Society and with the Mitral Academy.
