STATEMENT OF NEED & CONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Valvular heart disease results in a significant health care burden, with a prevalence of 3% in the general population and 9% in those 65 years of age and older. This burden is expected to increase with aging of the general population, bringing the total number of people aged ≥65 years with valvular heart disease in the United States to approximately 5.2 million by year 2020, and 6.8 million individuals by the year 2030. The presence of valvular heart disease is associated with a significant attributable increase in risk of death, even in analyses accounting for patient morbidity, leading to a societal burden in health care.

As a result of the high prevalence and prognostic impact of valvular heart disease, the medical profession continues to evolve with improvements in guidelines and recommendations for clinical practice, innovation in surgical and catheter-based therapies, an emphasis on earlier intervention for timing of valve therapy, and an increasing weight given towards the establishment of valve centers of expertise. The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation (MHIF) has created a scientific program, co-sponsored by Allina Health and The Society for Cardiac Angiography and Interventions, “Valve Summit 2014: The Science and Delivery of Optimal, Multi-Disciplinary Care,” to address the ongoing, complex evolution in the clinical management of patients with valvular heart disease. We invite you to join us!

This conference will provide opportunities for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and clinical cardiologists to learn from leading experts from across the country. Faculty will present innovations in surgical and catheter-based valve therapies, as well as discuss the latest guidelines and recommendations for clinical practice. Attendees will learn how to deliver appropriate care across the entire spectrum of disease manifestation by gaining a detailed understanding of new sets of indications, complications and outcomes. The planned program offers opportunities to develop practical skills, exchange ideas, and learn from experts and colleagues from across the country.

New hands-on opportunity for attendees!

Come learn techniques for MitraClip, Sadra Lotus, CoreValve, Sapien, V8 and other technologies with proctors and industry representatives. Join us for a new dedicated session on Saturday, April 26th, 12:00 to 1:00 PM. Due to limited space, this session is available to paid summit registrants only, on a first-come, first-serve basis. The latest catheter-based and surgical technologies also will available for your review throughout the program in the exhibit hall.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the lecture sessions of this conference, participants will be able to:

  • Recall indications, techniques, outcomes, and complications for transcatheter valve intervention in patients with native valve lesions and dysfunction valve prostheses.
  • Recollect the changes in recommendations for practice guidelines in the newly revised ACC/AHA Valvular Heart Disease Practice Guidelines.
  • Describe the advantages and pitfalls of comprehensive diagnostic techniques for patients with valvular heart disease such as cardiac computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), three-dimensional echocardiography, and complex invasive hemodynamic catheterization.
  • Elicit the rationale, challenges, and necessity of the heart team approach to valvular heart disease, and the functionality of the team within a center of excellence.
  • Evoke the changing landscape of percutaneous and surgical techniques of valve repair and replacement.
  • Evaluate the barriers to care in patients with valvular heart disease, with specific attention to current gaps in the timely delivery of percutaneous and surgical intervention.

Target Audience

Interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and clinical cardiologists practicing, or intending to practice, surgical or catheter-based valve therapies. Care team members such as cardiovascular nurse practitioners and physician assistants, echocardiographers, internists, nurses and others involved in the evaluation, diagnosis and/or management of patients with valvular heart disease may also attend.
