This didactic procedure concerns 88 y.o man in good general conditions, presenting Asymptomatic severe Aortic stenosis.
He was successfully treated with transfemoral TAVI using  and implantation of ACURATE neo (Boston Scientific) self-expandable Valve.


Educational objectives

  • How to manage parients with severe valvular Aortic stenosis.
  • How to plan & proceed  with TAVI intervention.
  • Tips & Tricks on vascular Access for TAVI.
  • Set Up for Rapid Pacing over the guidewire.
  • When &  How to predilate Aortic Valve before prosthesis implantation.
  • How to make Balloon sizing for predilatation.
  • Different Landmarks & Targets to know during Acurate neo Valve implantation.
  • Step-by-Step Optimal implnatation technique.
