Heart valve calcification resulting in stenosis is a prevalent disease in the aging population. Traditionally associated with inflammation, lipid accumulation, and classical cardiovascular risk factors, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying this pathology remain relatively unaddressed. The objective of this talk is to provide an update on the epidemiology and risk conditions predisposing patients to cardiac valve pathology, and on molecular aspects of valve cells pathologic progression.

Questions and Answers

During the Q&A, participants will have the opportunity to interact with the chairs and speakers by asking their questions verbally using the “Raise hand” feature or in written form using the "Q&A" module. Chairs and speakers can answer directly in the module (publicly or privately) or discuss live during the Q&A.


Registration for this event is now closed.

The event recording will be accessible on demand two weeks after the live event.
