Scripps’ Structural Heart Intervention and Imaging conference is designed to provide a practical, cutting-edge, and case-based assessment of the emerging area of structural heart disease intervention and interventional cardiovascular imaging, with an emphasis on the collaborative nature of these procedures across many disciplines within cardiology. The expert faculty will include interventionists, invasive cardiologists, echocardiographers, electrophysiologists, cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, and sonographers. Faculty will discuss clinical guidelines on patient selection, pre-procedural assessment, procedural tips, techniques and challenges (including concurrent imaging) during the performance of the procedures and conclude with assessment of outcomes and future directions.
After attending this live activity, participants should be able to:
- Assemble the appropriate multidisciplinary team, imaging technologies and catheter equipment to perform structural heart disease interventions.
- Identify complications of catheter-based therapies for structural heart disease and safely manage them with various procedural techniques.
- Apply a comprehensive approach to the assessment of the aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves, and the interatrial septum, using echocardiography (TTE, TEE and ICE), CT, and MRI for the purpose of the interventional treatment of these cardiac structures.
- Interpret current clinical data in order to optimize the treatment of patients with aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation and atrial fibrillation.
- Discuss tricuspid anatomy and function and assess the implications of tricuspid regurgitation and transcatheter techniques for transcatheter tricuspid valve repair.
- Cite the current indications for catheter-based techniques, including transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), transcatheter mitral valve repair/replacement, left atrial appendage closure, ASD, and paravalvular leaks.
- Evaluate the patient with cryptogenic stroke and identify the patient in whom PFO closure is appropriate.
- Integrate emerging data into TAVR decision-making regarding surgical risk, including low and intermediate-risk patients.
- Interpret and incorporate CT imaging before and after LAA closure.
- Integrate basic and advanced imaging and catheter techniques for transeptal puncture for the purpose of LAA closure, transcatheter mitral valve repair and paravalvular leak closure.
- Select the appropriate type and size device for TAVR, LAA closure, PFO closure, and other structural interventions.
- Apply echocardiographic findings to determine optimal strategy for transcatheter mitral valve repair.
- Employ specific catheter techniques and technologies for the transcatheter repair of simple and complex aortic and mitral paravalvular leaks.
- Incorporate advanced techniques for transcatheter mitral valve repair, TAVR, PFO, ASD, and LAA closure in the setting of challenging anatomy and/or patient co-morbidities.
- Avoid common pitfalls in the application of the newer imaging modalities.

Cultural & Linguistic Competency and Implicit Bias
This activity is designed to include curriculum addressing the topics of cultural and linguistic competency (CLC) and implicit bias (IB) in compliance with California Business and Professions (B&P) Code Section 2190. All those involved in the planning and execution of this activity have been asked to identify and discuss issues relevant to the topics being covered. In addition, a variety of resources are available that address cultural and linguistic competency and implicit bias. A resource document can be downloaded from the Conference Details section above.
