17 years after the First-in-Man TAVI case performed by our team in Rouen on April 2002, the procedure is incredibly expanding. Significant technological advances and simplified strategies led to an explosion of TAVI with 300 000 cases performed to date in the world.
To address the demand of many colleagues wishing to assess the feasibility and safety of the simplified strategy with us, we have started a series of interactive workshops based on live video- transmission of « minimalist transfemoral-TAVI cases » using the SAPIEN 3 valve, with “hands-on”experience. End-points: patient selection and procedural tips and tricks.
Live cases will be transmitted from the Department of Cardiology of the Rouen University Hospital Charles Nicolle to our Medical Training Center located at a walking distance.
Hands-on experience will be provided with work on electronic simulator, on CT-imaging in our radiology lab, on TAVI devices and closure devices. Furthermore, 2 participants will be scrubbing with us in the cath-lab for each live case (appointed by drawing lots)
It will be a great pleasure to share with you our experience
