Interventional Echocardiography

Interdisciplinary advanced training for guiding in the treatment of structural heart disease

In the past few years, echocardiographic guidance of interventions for structural heart disease has established itself as the fourth pillar of cardiac ultrasound alongside regular transthoracic, transoesophageal and stress echocardiography.

The German Heart Centre at Charité in Berlin has a large team of specialists working in the field of interventional therapy for structural heart disease. All common therapeutic procedures as well as a variety of innovative new concepts are carried out in large numbers every year.

For this two-day course, we have put together an exciting programme aimed at experienced echocardiographers who are interested in interventional guiding or are already working in this field. Important tips and tricks for pre-, intra- and post-interventional imaging will be presented and discussed by top-class speakers from the fields of echocardiography, interventional cardiology, cardio-anaesthesia and cardiac surgery.

Key topics of the programme:

Aortic valve stenosis

  • Quantification of aortic valve stenosis beyond the “normal flow high gradient” situation
  • Interventional therapy of aortic valve stenosis
  • Post-procedural assessment of aortic valve prostheses (paravalvular leakage, mismatch, pocket thrombosis, degeneration, endoplastitis, other complications)
  • Interdisciplinary case-based discussion

Mitral valve insufficiency

  • Quantification of mitral regurgitation (MI)
  • Echocardiographic screening for interventional therapy of MI
  • Procedure guiding step-by-step (procedure, cases, complications)
  • Looking to the future: New therapeutic concepts for MI
  • Post-procedural and course: quantification of residual insufficiency and stenosis, complications
  • Interdisciplinary case-based discussion

Tricuspid valve regurgitation

  • Quantification of tricuspid regurgitation (TI)
  • Echocardiographic screening for interventional therapy of TI
  • Procedure guiding step-by-step (procedure, cases, complications)
  • Looking to the future: New therapy concepts for TI
  • Post-procedural and course: quantification of residual insufficiency and stenosis, complications
  • Interdisciplinary case-based discussion

Further information on the advanced training programme

Echocardiography is not only an indispensable basic diagnostic tool in clinical routine, but is also essential in therapy planning and implementation, particularly in the area of structural heart disease.
