6th Conference of Transcatheter Heart Valve Therapies

Athens Hilton Hotel

The HYGEIA Hospital Trancatheter Heart Valve Department and 2nd Cardiac Surgery Clinic jointly organized the 6th Transcatheter Heart Valve Therapy Conference. The event took place at Hilton Hotel, Athens, on Friday May 12 & Saturday May 13, 2017. It is the only conference in Greece that focuses exclusively on the latest developments in the field of trancatheter heart valve therapy over the last decade.

As noted by the Conference organizers, Stratis Pattakos and Konstantinos Spargias, “Technological advancement and extensive research have made it possible to essentially treat all types of heart valve conditions using transcatheter methods. These techniques allow valve replacement or repair using catheters, similarly to a coronary angiography, without surgical incisions or extracorporeal circulation. They are minimally invasive, with a lower risk of complications and faster recovery and return to normal activities.”

They further added, “For the last 6 years, the Conference has greatly contributed to educating Greek doctors on this field through talks, vivid discussions and live broadcasts of procedures. It further aims to continue this effort, so that Greece does not lag behind, but rather participates in shaping the future, with the ultimate aim being to benefit the Greek patients.”

Just in 2016, many of these new techniques (bioprosthetic transcatheter aortic valve implantations, tricuspid valve repair and transcatheter mitral valve failure repairs using the PASCAL system) were successfully performed for the first time in Greece at HYGEIA Hospital.

HYGEIA has also been recognized as a Center of Excellence & Training for its transcatheter valve program by the largest medical supply manufacturers in the world (Edwards, Medtronic and Abbott).
