Mitral Academy at "1st SICCH Course on Transcatheter Surgery"

Mitral Academy will take part in the first SICCH course (Italian Society for Cardiac and Vascular Surgery) dedicated to transcatheter procedures in cardiovascular surgery to be held this year in Naples on June 16th – 17th
The founder and president of Mitral Academy - Prof. Giuseppe Speziale  - will take part in this important event that intends to make a point about the latest state of the art procedures in cardiac surgery, in particular on methods in relation to interventional cardiology. 

Prof. Speziale - expert in minimally invasive mitral valve repair will be the moderator of the second session of the course and will be responsible for coordinating the efforts of experts that will enrich the scientific debate concerning innovative therapeutic treatments of heart valves via transcatheter approach. The course is specifically designed to lay the foundations for tomorrow’s cardiac surgeons that necessarily need to be updated on all aspects and should prove him/herself efficiently successful in percutaneous interventions as well.

In line with current European and international interventional philosophies, heart surgeons are now increasingly called upon to play a hybrid role and extremely specialized with advantages for patients that diseases such as those affecting the aortic and mitral valve can be treated with a broad spectrum of therapeutic options.

The SICCH course in Naples - which will bring together many heart experts - is therefore an opportunity to initiate significant recognition on the evolution of cardiac surgery increasingly oriented in applying minimally invasive procedures that facilitate the patient in reducing trauma and postoperative complications and quickly return to a normal lifestyle. 

Mitral Academy - as a training body - is pleased to make a contribution to this educational event for SICCH and at the same time to incorporate new knowledge regarding therapies in the treatment of valve disease with innovative methods that are increasingly using minimally invasive devices which give way to new perspectives in comparison to traditional surgery.
