Conference Summary

38th Annual Echocardiography and Structural Heart Symposium is organized by Baptist Health South Florida. This online CME course will be held from Oct 28 - 29, 2021.

Who Should Attend:
• Anesthesiologists
• Cardiologists
• Emergency Department of Physicians
• Critical Care Physicians
• Sonographers
• Medical professionals interested in echocardiography and the newest advances in diagnosis and treatment of structural heart disease

Symposium Overview:
As valvular heart disease and structural heart treatments enhance more integral within cardiology, providers will rely on the diagnosis and treatment of disease using transcatheter/nonsurgical therapies.

The 38th Annual Echocardiography and Structural Heart Symposium – formerly known as the Echocardiography Symposium – will cover successful topics from years past. A comprehensive review of novel guidelines and core topics with echocardiography (cardiac structure, cardiac function, and hemodynamics). This year the CME activity is wrapped up with the other complementary topics such as structural heart and advanced cardiac imaging.

The online CME course will emphasize the lectures by renowned experts on topics associated with the advances in echocardiography, advanced cardiac imaging, and treatment for structural heart disease.

Course Objectives:
At the conclusion of this CME webinar, attendees should better able to:
• Understand the significance of a structural heart team that uses a multidisciplinary approach to diagnose and treat structural heart disease.
• Identify the echocardiographic presentation, especially in patients diagnosed with cancer, atrial fibrillation, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
• Illustrate the utility and application of advanced imaging in valvular heart disease.
• Evaluate and implement a comprehensive approach when conducting the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves and the interatrial septum, utilizing basic and advanced imaging techniques to identify and guide the treatment of valvular heart disease.
• Estimate the current evidence-based clinical data in TAVR, MitraClip, LAA occluder devices, paravalvular leak, and Etoh septal ablation in order to optimize treatment.
• Demonstrate the management and utility of transesophageal and 3-D imaging in the interventional lab operating room and intensive care unit.
• Read the tricuspid valve anatomy and function and describe the implications for the treatment of tricuspid regurgitation using transcatheter therapy.
• Avoid common pitfalls in imaging patients in cardio-oncology, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and structural heart disease.
• Outline protocols that can assess valvular heart disease after the intervention.

• Cardiac Structure
• Hemodynamics Assessment
• Valve Repair Approaches (TAVR, mitral valve repair devices, left atrial appendage occlusion devices, paravalvular closure and alcohol septal ablation)
• Cardiac Function
• Advanced Echocardiography Imaging Techniques (3D, Strain, CT, TEE)
