Cardiac Considerations of Comorbidities: Part 3 Kidney Failure

This is part three of the four-part series. Renal Failure and Kidney Disease are common comorbidities that can have serious ramifications on the cardiology patient’s prognosis and quality of life. The treatment of many cardiovascular conditions can negatively affect renal health and vice versa. The safe and effective management of kidney failure is dependent upon close collaboration between Cardiology and Nephrology.

NON-SURGICAL VALVULAR REPAIR IN HEART FAILURE PATIENTS: COAPT TRIAL REVIEW

This program, sponsored by Abbott, has been designed to bridge existing knowledge gaps to fulfill unmet clinical and procedural needs related to the treatment of mitral valve disease, utilizing MitraClip. Due to the degenerative complexity and sophisticated progressive nature of mitral valve disease, medical management and/or surgical corrections do not always produce the best possible patient outcomes. The COAPT trial shines great clarity on best practices in patient selection criteria, short and long term clinical outcomes, and impact on patients with pre-existing/developing heart failure. Dr. James Hermiller, who has been a key thought leader and pioneer in managing these multifaceted patients, will share his clinical insights into the data produced by the COAPT trial. He will also speak from his experience on which patients he believes stand to benefit the most from the option of MitraClip therapy. This dynamic, interactive, and highly educational event has been developed to enhance the learning experience and professional growth for physicians, fellows, and staff of all levels.

Cardiac Considerations of Comorbidities: Part 2 Sleep Apnea

This is part two of the four-part series. Sleep Apnea is one of the most common comorbidities for cardiology patients today. Sleep Apnea can be a predictor and contributor for many cardiac conditions and appropriate treatment can greatly reduce complications of cardiovascular patients. This comprehensive, thought-provoking program has been designed to enhance clinical care and efficient patient co-management while discussing how to guide the care of your patient as part of a multidisciplinary team.

ADVANCES IN CRT TECHNOLOGIES

This program, sponsored by Abbott, has been designed to bridge existing knowledge gaps to fulfill unmet clinical and procedural needs related to the management of HFrEF patients, utilizing CRT technologies. Since the introduction of CRT therapy over 25 years ago, there have been many advancements in the devices, leads, and algorithms to treat this cohort of challenging patients. Dr. Niraj Varma, who has been a key thought leader and pioneer in managing these multifaceted patients, will share his clinical insights on optimizing these devices in order to enhance patient outcomes. He will present how various device and lead technologies, as well as new algorithms, can improve the effectiveness of patient therapy. This dynamic and interactive event has been developed to enhance the learning experience and professional growth for physicians, fellows, and staff of all levels.
