The last several years have witnessed an explosive growth of structural heart interventions and with its use is expected to grow significantly over the next decade. The PAMEAS Structural Heart education and training programs will provide attendees with practical, concise, leading-edge information in a highly interactive and informal environment for this important area of clinical care.
The interventional cardiologist who engages in these procedures will need to be skilled in new techniques while using effective imaging throughout the procedure while collaborating with a number of disciplines. The small audience size at these programs will afford excellent opportunities to interact with other attendees, faculty, and exhibit participants and engage in dialog about patient selection and assessment guidelines, procedural techniques and challenges, imaging during the procedure, outcomes evaluation, and future directions that structural heart disease interventions will take.
These programs are designed to provide the practical and timely value to interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists, echocardiographers, and electrophysiologists with interests in participating in multidisciplinary structural heart disease interventional teams. Fellows, residents, cardiology nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and members of industry will also find value in attending these programs.
