PROGRAMS

“SEE ONE – DO ONE” AVR WITH SOLO SMART (OPEN SURGERY)

 

INSTRUCTOR:

Professor Massimo A. Mariani, M.D., Ph.D., FECTS

LOCATION:

UMCG - Groningen, The Netherlands


PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

This workshop was specifically designed to teach surgeons how to effectively implant Solo Smart so that they can return to their medical facility and perform 1 or ideally 2 cases within 10 days of attending this course (recommended maximum timeframe). This course will enhance the implant procedure and reduce the overall learning curve when performing valve replacement using the Solo Smart aortic valve prosthesis. As a stentless pericardial tissue valve, Solo Smart was specifically designed for patients requiring superior hemodynamic performance.


CADAVER LAB:

Offering a very hands-on approach, our cadaver laboratory allows surgeons the opportunity to refine their implantation skills through observation, and repetition.


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:

Participants must bring an MRSA free declaration not older than 1 month and an Hepatitis B vaccine declaration, required by the Dutch hospital regulation in order to be able to enter the OR.


INTENDED AUDIENCE:

This workshop was designed for cardiac surgeons.


COURSE DURATION:

This is a two day training program starting mid-day on the first day.

SUTURELESS AVR WITH PERCEVAL MULTIPLE LOCATIONS WORLDWIDE

 


COURSE OVERVIEW:

Given the increasing need for advanced AVR solutions, demand for LivaNova Perceval - the only truly sutureless device on the market - grow each year. To keep up with demand, LivaNova has developed a highly comprehensive training program for Perceval AVR. With more than 50 of the world’s leading cardiac surgeons actively involved as traveling program proctors in addition to the many Centers of Excellence that offer Perceval observational training, this program is currently offered across all continents. In fact, with more than 15000 units implanted to date in almost 310 centres and 80 countries worldwide, this has become the largest cardiac surgeon training program for sutureless AVR in the world. Given our expansive network of physician experts, the highly robust Perceval training program includes a wide variety of AVR approaches and techniques, from the more traditional Full Sternotomy to Mini Sternotomy and Right Anterior Thoracotomy.
