WELCOME NOTE

Dear Colleagues,

The HYGEIA Hospital Transcatheter Heart Valve and Cardiac Surgery Departments welcome you at the 6th Transcatheter Heart Valve Therapies (THVT) Meeting, held at the Athens Hilton Hotel on May 12-13, 2017.

Trancatheter heart valve therapies is an emerging area in Cardiology and this conference is the first and only Greek educational meeting specializing in this field. For 6 consecutive years the THVT meeting has been providing high quality educational content, offering the latest updates in current therapies and clinical research in transcatheter heart valve therapeutics.

The field of THV therapies has been rapidly evolving over the last years. Ongoing developments in procedural techniques and biomedical engineering have made trancatheter valve therapies an effective and safe method for treatment of almost all cardiac valve diseases. These techniques are aiming in the repair or replacement of cardiac valves with transcatheter methods resembling those used for coronary angiography. They are minimally invasive with low complication rates, resulting in patients recovering faster and returning sooner to their routine daily activities.

The goal of this meeting is to provide continuous education as well as a forum for discussion for the physicians and healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with heart valve disease in Greece, aiming at improved patient care and outcomes.

2016 has been a very productive year for the THV team at HYGEIA. Novel techniques such as percutaneous implantation of the bioprosthetic mitral valve, transcatheter repair of mitral valve with the innovative PASCAL system and trancatheter repair of tricuspid valve, have all been applied with great success for the first time in Greece and we are going to share all these new experiences.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the 6th THVT Meeting hoping that it will be a productive and exciting educational opportunity.
