TAVR Workshop

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is rapidly changing the management of patient’s with aortic valve disease, and cardiovascular CT plays a major role in procedural planning. During this course you will learn from a multi-disciplinary expert faculty on actual cases.

Course Description

This workshop will allow the learner to get a deep understanding on all aspects of post processing CTA for the purposes of TAVR procedural planning. The workshop is primarily a “How I read” with the expert in a interactive format.

Target Audience

Cardiologists, Interventional cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons, Physicians, Radiologists


Cardiac Computed Tomography

Learning Objectives

Upon completing the course, learners will be able to:

  • apply cardiovascular CT to optimize clinical outcome in transcatheter aortic valve
    implementation (TAVI) and TAVR with a focus on annular sizing, device selection and
    strategies to reduce potential complications.
  • Identify unfavorable aortic root and vascular anatomy and identify and evaluate alternative approaches.
  • Describe the variants of aortic valve, coronary sinus and coronary ostia anatomy and how they may impact management of aortic valve disease.
  • Describe the anatomy of the mitral valve by CT and how it can assist in TAVI planning.

How I Read

Ct Workflow or Tavr: Protocols And Image Reconstruction

Fundamentals of Annular Segmentation

  • Identifying the annular plane
  • Annular sizing by ct
  • Valve morphology-tricuspid or not tricuspid

Important Ancillary Measurements Beyond The Annulus

  • Coronary height
  • Lvot
  • Sinus of Valsalva
  • Post – Tavr ct and its clinical significance
  • Ct for valve in valve procedure
  • Access route evaluation
  • Incidental findings that impact the procedure
  • Ideal report generation
