11:00 a.m. TCT @ AATS: NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR A NEW FUTURE
Chairs: A. Marc Gillinov, MD, Cleveland Clinic
Mathew R. Williams, MD, Columbia University
There is a continued expansion of hybrid surgical and interventional f for coronary artery disease and a growing use of endografts as primary therapy for aortic aneurysms. The surgeon has many more options available for the treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease. Percutaneous aortic valve replacement, both transfemoral and transapical, has further broadened the population of eligible patients for treatment of aortic stenosis. This diversity has created the imperative for a comprehensive course providing contemporary and cutting-edge review and discourse for the evolving surgeon. This year's session will provide valuable data and training on advancements in surgical techniques, such as lesser-invasive approaches, robotics, novel valves and repair procedures, use of intraoperative imaging, novel devices, and optimal pharmacotherapy in order to improve outcomes for patients undergoing cardiac surgery. TCT@AATS is an in-depth course focusing on novel and advanced surgical techniques for surgeons interested in the most contemporary surgical techniques and catheter-based approaches.
