Cleveland Clinic 22nd Valve Disease, Structural Interventions and Diastology Summit
Cleveland Clinic’s world renowned faculty congregates with several guest speakers for the 22nd Valve Disease, Structural Interventions and Diastology Summit. This activity will focus on mitral, aortic and tricuspid valve diseases, while providing a unique opportunity for updates in new and emerging topics. These include basic and advanced imaging techniques such as 3-D echocardiography, fusion imaging, strain imaging and interventional echo. Worth up to 16.75 AMA PRA Category I Credits™, this enduring material meets Echo Lab CME requirements for Physicians and sonographers.
Credit Hours: 16.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and ABIM MOC points for this activity.

Following this enduring material, the participants will be able to:
- Apply echocardiography to diagnose the severity, mechanism, etiology, and hemodynamic impact of the many types of valve disease, including mitral regurgitation, mitral stenosis, aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation and tricuspid valve disorders.
- Assess the most recent innovations in structural interventions and describe their clinical use.
- Translate new guideline criteria on imaging into current decision-making regarding structural and valve interventions, medical treatment and surgical valve repair/replacement.
- Utilize echocardiographic imaging for imaging before, during, and after interventional procedures, closure of periprosthetic leaks, valve-in-valve repair, LAA closure and tricuspid repair.
- Discuss multimodality imaging techniques, including 3-D echocardiography, fusion imaging, strain imaging, MRI/CT as well as contrast echo.
- Describe clinical methods to diagnose diastolic dysfunction and manage disorders such as heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, cardiac amyloidosis, complicated pericarditis and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
- Discuss role of clinical indications and emerging uses of contrast echocardiography.
- Review what artificial intelligence is and how to use in clinical practice.
Noninvasive and invasive cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, sonographers, nurses, fellows, cardiology nurse practitioners, and physician assistants will benefit from this Summit.
