2019 Valvular Heart Disease Symposium

8 November 2019 - 9 November 2019


We are delighted to invite you to attend the second state-of-the-art Valvular Heart Disease Symposium to be held in Sydney at Macquarie University on Friday November 8th and Saturday November 9th 2019.

In recent years, the treatment of valvular heart disease has been revolutionised by percutaneous therapies. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has transformed treatment of aortic stenosis by enabling percutaneous replacement of the aortic valve. Furthermore, there has been rapid progress in the development of transcatheter therapies for mitral regurgitation (MR) including the MitraClip procedure as well as emerging therapies such as transcatheter mitral valve replacement. In the last year, the landmark COAPT trial demonstrated striking prognostic benefit for the MitraClip in patients with functional MR – a finding that heralds a transformation in therapies for MR.

This Symposium will be interdisciplinary, bringing together Cardiologists, Cardiothoracic Surgeons and other clinicians with a cardiovascular interest together, in a Heart Team-based approach to comprehensively cover the latest developments and controversies in the clinical assessment and management of aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation and tricuspid incompetence.

We will be joined by a leading international and national faculty including Keynote Speaker Professor Michael Mack, Director of the Cardiovascular Services for the Baylor Scott & White Health. Professor Mack, a Past President of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS), has made seminal contributions to transcatheter heart valve therapies including being a leading investigator for the seminal PARTNER randomized clinical trials for TAVI and the COAPT trial for MitraClip. As a cardiothoracic surgeon who has made key contributions to transcatheter therapies, he is amongst the best placed to understand the future landscape in valvular heart disease therapies as a whole.

The two days of the Symposium will include structured presentations and practical imaging sessions for participants. There will be live echocardiography teaching sessions and an interactive interventional echocardiography teaching lab.

Registrations are strictly limited and will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis.
