September 29th, 2012 at 9 a.m.
Crowne Plaza Hotel in Clayton
Dr. Brian Lindman will provide an understanding of heart valve disease, how heart valves work and the implications of disease. He will focus on aortic and mitral valve disease. Dr. Hersh Maniar will cover recent less invasive advances in the treatment of heart valve disease, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). The Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Heart & Vascular Center is the first and most experienced in the region to perform TAVR as an alternative to open cardiac surgery for valve replacement. It is one of only 23 centers in the nation to have participated in the national trial leading to the procedure’s FDA approval.
