Dr. David H. Adams is the Program Director of the AATS Mitral Conclave.

“The first-ever AATS Mitral Conclave was held on May 5th and 6th. The world's leading experts in mitral valve disease convened to discuss management guidelines, imaging, pathology, minimally invasive procedures, percutaneous approaches, surgical techniques, devices, and long-term results.

"With 39 faculty and 250 presentations, including selected abstracts and videos, our goal was to have a comprehensive meeting focused on mitral valve disease that would allow attendees to gain exposure to all of the common approaches used in the top centers throughout the world," said Program Director David H. Adams, MD. "We continue to see tremendous progress in our understanding of mitral disease intervention, and a great interest among surgeons in learning and advancing mitral valve repair strategies," said Dr. Adams, chairman of the department of cardiothoracic surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York.”
