UVA Selected to Present Live Case Studies at the 2020 Virtual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Conference
This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics Conference, the premier international scientific symposium of the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF). Like so many events of 2020, this year’s conference will be held virtually, with over 10,000 attendees from more than 90 countries expected to log on for TCT Connect, broadcasting on Wednesday, Oct. 14 through Sunday, Oct. 18.
TCT Connect will provide opportunities to engage with leaders in the field of interventional cardiology, clinical trials and science training, as well as live surgical cases presented by select hospitals worldwide. “The University of Virginia is honored to be chosen as 1 of 6 hospitals in the U.S., and 1 of 9 hospitals worldwide selected to perform live cases as part of the TCT Conference this year,” says structural and interventional cardiologist Nishtha Sodhi, MD.
UVA will present the following cases:
- Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement using the Edwards Sapien valve system, which was recently FDA-approved for both pulmonary stenosis and regurgitation. Performed by: Scott Lim, MD; Nishtha Sodhi, MD; and Michael Hainstock, MD.
- Transcatheter mitral valve replacement, currently being investigated at select trial sites. Performed by: Scott Lim, MD; Nishtha Sodhi, MD; Gorav Ailawadi, MD; Leora Yarboro, MD; Irving Kron, MD; and Jared Beller, MD.
Those unable to attend the live conference will have an opportunity to view a recording of the event online beginning Friday, Oct. 16.
