COURSE PRESENTATION
Percutaneous aortic implantation of TAVI is currently an alternative to conventional surgery and will be indicated in low-risk patients. However, some problems exist regarding the difficulty in vascular access, choice of prosthesis according to the valvular anatomy, and exact placement of the prosthesis in the aortic annulus, which will influence the percentage of additional definitive pacemakers and the degree of peri-valvular leak. In the course the anatomical, material issues and technical revision will be discussed for a new non transfemoral accesses, such as transcaval access, of which Course Director and his team were pioneers in Europe.

This course provides access to the best specialists in the knowledge of TAVi implantation, considering new techniques and the discussion of valve choice, based on anatomical imaging. The knowledge and discussion of implantation will be based on imaging analysis, simulation and printing 3D technologies. With the acquired knowledge, the students will be able to reach better performance of TAVI percutaneous implantation technique, regarding to acquire better clinical results, in intermediate and low-risk patients.
TARGET AUDIENCE
Medical Doctors, Nurses, Technicians or Engineers with experience or interest in TAVI
LEARNING OBJECTIVES >> KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO DEVELOP
  1. To understand the indications, complications and limitations of the percutaneous TAVI Procedure.
  2. To understand the femoral access anatomy and angiographic measurements
  3. To understand trans-cava access and the pathophysiological principles of the retroperitoneal space.
  4. To train the trans-cava technique for familiarization of the steps to be performed from aortic puncture to closure.
  5. To review the percutaneous implantation techniques according to the characteristics of the aortic annulus
  6. To implant several prostheses chosen according to the characteristics of the aortic ring.
  7. To learn and train new implantation techniques favouring the high implantation in RAO
