DescriptionArguably no field in medicine has a faster pace of change, innovation and randomized trial data than cardiovascular disease. An annual update of the broad range of cardiovascular issues for primary care practitioners and other practitioners is always of great intrinsic value. This conference will provide updates on surgical and percutaneous management of severe mitral valve regurgitation, the management of STEMI, evaluation and management of atrial fibrillation, and other cardiovascular diseases, diagnoses and treatments.
Primary Care Physicians, ACPs, and Nurses
- Evaluate recent trial data on when ablation of atrial fibrillation improves management
- Recall and apply the new hypertension guidelines and updated goals for blood pressure
- Identify when to refer patients with atrial fibrillation for left atrial appendage closure
- Recognize when to refer patients with stroke and PFO for percutaneous PFO closure
- Discuss current surgical and percutaneous treatments for severe mitral valve
