Webinar – Thursday 24th September 2020, 17:00-18:00 (UK)

Dear Heart Team Member,

Aortic Stenosis is a ticking time bomb and many patients may die while waiting for AVR¹ with 40% of patients on a waiting list requiring an unplanned hospital admission in approximately a four month period².

In the current context of the treatment for patients with aortic stenosis, Edwards Lifesciences would like to help contribute to the Heart Team Community by facilitating a webinar on future considerations for aortic stenosis patients for optimal treatment with minimal hospital footprint.

The Webinar will be entitled “The Future of TAVI in the UK” and will feature talks from Prof. Nick Curzen on the BCIS vision for the future and Dr. Dan Blackman on the UK Valve For Life mission. The webinar will be chaired by Prof. Philip MacCarthy and live Q&A session panel discussion including Prof. Neil Ruparelia, Hammersmith Hospital, London, Mr. Wil Woan, Heart Valve Voice as well as Prof. Nick Curzen and Dr. Dan Blackman.
