Course details

20 years after the First-in-Man TAVI performed by our team in Rouen on April 2002, the procedure is incredibly expanding. Significant technological advances, simplified strategies and scientific evidences led to an explosion of TAVI with about 1 500 000 cases performed to date in the world. 

Since 2002, in Rouen, transfemoral TAVI has been performed in 100% of cases using a simplified approach under local anesthesia. Over the last 12 years, 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. Despite strong initial reluctance, this technique is now adopted everywhere and can be performed in > 90% of all TAVI cases. To be carried out safely and with optimal results, many tips and tricks must be learned. This is the goal of our workshops based on lectures and video-transmission of live cases from several centers using the minimalist strategy with different types of TAVI valves.

What will you learn?

- observe live cases of Transfemoral TAVI using the “minimalist strategy
