Scripps' Sixth Annual Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging: A Practical Approach
- Start Date:
- Wednesday, 8 February, 2017
- End Date:
- Friday, 10 February, 2017 6:00pm
Transcatheter structural heart disease intervention is a rapidly growing part of clinical care in adult cardiology. Experts expect structural heart disease procedures to grow by as much as 30% in the next decade. Interventionists will need to be skilled in many more procedures than in the past. These procedures require the application of new interventional techniques while integrating imaging before and during treatment.
This is an increasingly complex process that relies on systematic and effective collaboration between cardiovascular imaging specialists and interventionists, among others. Scripps' Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging conference is designed to provide a practical, cutting-edge, and case-based assessment of the emerging area of structural heart disease intervention and interventional cardiovascular imaging, with an emphasis on the collaborative nature of these procedures across many disciplines within cardiology.
The expert faculty will include interventionists, invasive cardiologists, echocardiographers, electrophysiologists, cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and sonographers. Faculty will discuss clinical guidelines on patient selection, pre-procedural assessment, procedural tips, techniques and challenges (including concurrent imaging) during the performance of the procedures and conclude with assessment of outcomes and future directions.

Scripps cardiologists are San Diego's top choice for heart care, seeing more patients than any other health care system. They serve patients with heart conditions including coronary artery disease, abnormal rhythms (arrhythmia), valve problems, congestive heart failure and more. Scripps cardiologists diagnose, treat and coordinate patient care with physicians and surgeons who specialize in all types of cardiac conditions and underlying health challenges related to the heart. Scripps cardiologists also serve as a heart health coach, helping patients manage, reduce or eliminate risk factors for heart disease such as hypertension and cholesterol. Cardiologists play a vital role in evaluating patients, prescribing medications and working hand-in-hand with heart specialists who are part of an overall treatment plan that can include digital imaging, electrophysiology, interventional cardiology and cardiovascular surgery.
