A meeting designed for the CONTEMPORARY HEART-TEAM

The first Mitral Valve Meeting was a great success which went beyond expectations. We now feel ready to take this venture a step forward in order to make the meeting classic par excellence for those who are passionate about the mitral valve.

The upcoming 2nd Mitral Valve Meeting 2016 will feature even more interaction and practical workshops. We plan to organize educational events for the Heart-Team, with hands-on new technologies, imaging and other subjects related to mitral valve interventions, from surgery to catheter-based technologies. Several live cases will enable interactive and passionate discussions. Collaboration with the industry will expose participants to the most modern technologies and give them a glimpse into the future.

Make sure that you are part of it! Contribute and shape the future of valve interventions! Together we can define the complementary role of medical, transcatheter and surgical therapies. As modern physicians, we should be aware of the different options available to us and be able to choose the best one for the patient. This task cannot be achieved without a team approach.

The Heart-Team approach involves strict collaboration of physicians with different backgrounds sharing the same objective of delivering the most appropriate and modern therapy tailored to patient needs. is the website designed for this multidisciplinary team. In the future, it is our ambition that this site will allow physicians to find the necessary information to fill gaps of knowledge between their specialities. Our aim is to improve communication and, in turn deliver seamless care to patients. On the website you will currently find some material from the 1st Mitral Valve Meeting including our scientific program and faculty.

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to register, to attend and participate in the second edition of this exciting and growing educational program.
