2019 Brown Heart Valve Symposium: Structural Heart Team Approach to Aortic & Mitral Valve Disease: Closing Gaps & Expanding Opportunities

Providence, RI US
April 6, 2019

There is a significant paradigm shift occurring in the management of patients with aortic and mitral valve disease. This recent changing landscape results in a lack of familiarity of how valve heart disease can be treated compared to the era when many providers received their medical school and residency/fellowship training.

Physicians and advanced care practitioners need to familiarize themselves with the most up to date guidelines on diagnosing and managing aortic and mitral valve disease, have a basic understanding of the options for management (medical, open surgical, and percutaneous approaches) and know how and when to refer patients to the heart team structural clinic. 

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, residents & fellows specializing in cardiology and primary care.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate the natural history of aortic & mitral valvulopathies.
  • Assess the strengths & limitations of advanced imaging techniques for characterizing surgical anatomy & quantifying the severity of valve disease. 
  • Provide treatment recommendations and/or referral resources for patients with valvular heart disease.
  • Assemble the appropriate multidisciplinary team, imaging technologies & catheter equipment to perform structural heart disease interventions.
  • Provide insight into the role of advanced practice providers & specialist nurses in the heart team approach to valvular heart disease.
  • Address ethical issues & the role of shared decision-making in recommending treatment options for advanced valvular heart disease.
