On the Agenda:

1) Aortic Stenosis: What do we know? with Professor Geoff Strange.
Key Learnings:
– The data we have historically relied on for our understanding of the natural history of AS is very old and relies on very small populations
– The target population researched should reflect the population analysed
– Moderate AS is just as bad as severe AS
– There are more patients not being treated than you think!

2) Surgical AVR in the Era of TAVI: Changing Landscapes with Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr Adam Zimmet.
Key Learnings: 
– Understand newer approaches to sAVR, including access and valve types
– Understand how to maximise the surgeons’ exposure to TAVI

3) Low-risk TAVI, not a question of patient risk but rather patient anatomy with Interventional Cardiologist Dr Dion Stub.
Key Learnings:
– Impact of x2 seminal low risk trials on TAVI practice.
– In 2020 and beyond who is and who is not appropriate for TAVI.

4) Health economics and funding innovation with Professor Danny Liew.
Key Learnings:
– Basic health economic evaluation
– Insights into decision making for reimbursement of health technologies
