Heart Failure Seminar: Focus on Ischemic and Valvular Heart Disease

February 2, 2023 - February 2, 2023 | Virtual


This virtual seminar will feature heart failure experts discussing percutaneous and surgical interventions.  Despite the advances in medical therapy, with growing benefit from the “4 pillars” of guideline directed medical therapy (GDMT), subsets of patients derive signification improvement in outcomes utilizing advanced percutaneous and surgical interventions via improvement in coronary flow, valvular function, and pump function.

Intended Audience

This program is intended for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and advanced practice professionals that provide care to patients with heart failure.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, learners will be better able to:

  1. Review the current data on the options for coronary revascularization, when, how, and who benefits for it
  2. To review the current indications and risk regarding valvular intervention in heart failure, and the data that support surgical vs. percutaneous valvular intervention
