American Association for Thoracic Surgery & American College of Cardiology

Course Directors: David H. Adams, MD, FACC; Steven F. Bolling, MD, MACC; Robert O. Bonow, MD, FACC; Howard C. Herrmann, MD, FACC

 

Heart disease accounts for more fatalities than any other single cause or group of causes of death in the United States. Valvular heart disease, affecting over 5 million individuals in the United States alone, can be congenital or acquired and may or may not be symptomatic for patients. While national Guidelines inform the care, controversies in care within advancing technological and medical arenas demand collaborative methods of diagnosis and strategies for medical, surgical and interventional management. The American College of Cardiology and the American Association for Thoracic Surgery are once again partnering to bring together cardiologists and surgeons in a cooperative, case-based course to address the rapid advances in the treatment of valvular heart disease. With the tradition of interactivity and practical decision making, the unique Heart Valve Summit is designed to engage participants in discussions, debates and potential controversies surrounding real-world cases with renowned faculty on the cutting edge of clinically relevant data for valvular heart disease management.

This interdisciplinary course emphasizes clinical decision making while combining the most relevant medical, surgical and interventional options for patient care. Tools for management are rapidly advancing and can significantly impact the entire care team. Breakout sessions for cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and physician assistants are designed to help specialists manage their unique challenges from a team perspective.

Harland Smith Lecture

 

Harland Smith Lecture

Dr. Carlton Smith received his MD and PhD at the University of Toronto and went on to join the Department of Anatomy in 1937 as an Assistant Professor. He began a distinguished career as a researcher, author and outstanding teacher, retiring as a Professor Emeritus from the Faculty of Medicine, Department of Anatomy. He married Marguerite (Rita) Harland, a fellow professor and anatomist and together, they generously supported Anatomy, establishing several student scholarship, supporting the renovation of Grant’s Anatomy Museum housed in the Medical Science Building, and endowing the Carlton and Marguerite Smith Lectureship in Anatomy. In March of each year the Division of Anatomy, Department of Surgery, funds the Harland-Smith Lecture for the Surgery Grand Rounds. This lectureship is dedicated to surgeons whose career has an emphasis on the integration of anatomic knowledge into surgical practice. Each year one of the Divisions is invited to nominate a speaker and this year the Division of Cardiac Surgery has invited Dr. Adams, Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Professor and Chairman, Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, The Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York. The focus of his talk will be on the patho-anatomy of mitral valve disease and how it guides decision making and repair strategies.

Dr. David Adams teaching cardiac surgery fellows how to perform mitral valve surgery on a porcine model.

Cultivating new entrants into the field of cardiac surgery is more important than ever. Supporting mentoring our current trainees is critical to demonstrate our commitment to education. This year, we have an opportunity to provide a new and unique educational program to cardiac surgery fellows. The fellows will actively participate and be asked to respond to questions similar to clinical practice and examinations. The program is organized around practical case presentations addressing the surgical management of aortic valve disease, aortic root pathology and aneurysms, mitral and tricuspid valve disease, CABG, reoperations, atrial fibrillation, and heart failure. This comprehensive program is designed with the following objectives in mind:

 

  • To provide fellows with practical surgical techniques, clinical judgment and outcome information.
  • To provide a forum for discussing technical challenges and controversies.
  • To present clinical and professional information relevant to surgeons who will soon be entering practice.

Co-directors Alain Carpentier, M.D., Ph.D., and David H. Adams, M.D., will be joined by an esteemed faculty of surgeons and cardiologists for an interactive program of surgery, presentations, and discussions for cardiothoracic surgeons, anesthesiologists and cardiologists.

 

Providing a broader scope and educational format different from the former Carpentier Le Club Mitrale, this CME-accredited 2-day course includes both live surgeries and discussion of pre-recorded cases.

 

Surgical techniques for valve reconstruction and replacement will be presented for mitral, aortic, and tricuspid valves. The role of echocardiographic assessment, as well as indications and techniques for adjunctive and future therapies, will also be included.
