Minimally Invasive Surgery and Its Role in the Future of Aortic Valve Replacement

Originally Broadcast: Tuesday, September 27th, 2022 | 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET 

As conventional AVR options continue to grow for young patients, the goal in lifetime management of these patients remains constant – to minimize the long-term risk when selecting valve and procedure type.

The evolution of SAVR towards more minimally invasive procedures has opened new opportunities for patients and clinicians, combining suitable valve type with enhanced recovery is demonstrating positive outcomes for patients who want to live long and live well.
