Détails de la formation

Since the First-in-Man case performed by our group in Rouen on April 16th 2002, TAVI has known an amazing expansion with, 21 years later, 2 000 000 cases having been performed worldwide in more than 80 countries. This success results from constant technological advances making the procedures simpler and safer and from an outstanding scientific evaluation.

Retrograde transfemoral TAVI has become the default strategy, feasible in 95% of cases. This strategy has reached its peak with the “minimalist approach” (local anesthesia, no TEE, percutaneous closure devices and early patient discharge home) that our team has been pioneering since 2012. Despite strong initial reluctance, this technique is now adopted everywhere.

This 13th edition of the workshop will be done in a hybrid way with the presence of cardiologists at the Rouen Medical Training Center and others online. Live cases with various models of TAVI systems will be transmitted from our Department of Cardiology in Rouen, and from other institutions in France Argentina, Brazil, United States, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Spain or Slovenia. Several lectures will be covering the topics of patient’s selection and management, CT scan screening, tips and tricks for the transfemoral minimalist approach, difficult cases, valve-in valve procedures, treatment of complications and overviews of TAVI valve technologies and updated results.

The goal of our practical course is to help you discover the latest technological advances in TAVI and to learn the many tips and tricks associated with a safe and successful transfemoral TAVI procedure. The first day of the workshop (November 22nd) will only be dedicated to a learning on simulators and therefore reserved for the cardiologists on-site. This will address patient selection (MSCT simulators) and procedural simulation with most currently used TAVI systems.

Qu'allez-vous apprendre ?

  • observe live cases of Transfemoral TAVI using the “minimalist strategy
  • prevention and management of complications

Chers Professeurs Cribier, Eltchaninoff et Gilard, Quel plaisir de vous retrouver à Rouen ! Je tiens à vous exprimer ma profonde gratitude pour cette formation exceptionnelle. J'avais déjà assisté à celle de 2019, qui était déjà excellente, mais cette édition a surpassé toutes les attentes, elle était tout simplement fantastique. Mes félicitations pour l'excellence de chaque aspect de la formation : les sessions en direct venant des quatre coins du monde commentées par le Pr Cribier, les simulations captivantes, l'implication des représentants des différents dispositifs médicaux, ainsi que les conférences et les mises au point animées par les Professeurs Cribier, Gilard et Eltchaninoff. Je tiens à saluer l'ensemble des efforts déployés et l'atmosphère chaleureuse qui a caractérisé cet événement. C'est une formation que je recommanderai sans réserve à tous mes collègues.
