|Combined organ transplantation increases in frequency
For patients at Mayo, late survival after combined organ transplantation is similar to that after isolated heart transplantation. Freedom from cardiac allograft rejection and dysfunction is improved following combined organ transplantation compared with isolated heart, liver or kidney transplantation.
Special ultrasound identifies heart disease in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Heart disease is a potentially deadly complication for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Speckle-tracking echocardiography may detect abnormalities in heart function early enough to allow intervention that prevents heart attacks and heart failure.
Advanced Catheter Ablation CourseFirst International Biological Valve Symposium
Sept. 8-11, 2012, in Chicago
Case-based presentations highlight practice dilemmas and management strategies. Experts discuss detailed patient cases with step-by-step analysis of approaches to catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation, complex atrial arrhythmias after AF ablation or in congenital heart disease, atrial tachycardias and atypical flutters, and ventricular arrhythmias.
Sept. 12, 2012, in Rochester, Minn.
Challenges in Clinical Cardiology
This symposium is a unique opportunity to bring leading investigators in the area of biological heart valve development together to discuss progress in the field and the future for valve regeneration. This activity does not offer AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
Sept. 14-16, 2012, in Chicago
Cases in Echocardiography, CT and MRI
Case-based reviews address relevant guidelines and the latest treatment options for patients with coronary artery disease, atrial fibrillation, congestive heart failure, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea and preventive cardiology.
Oct. 24-27, 2012, in Napa, Calif.
Advanced course uses clinical cases to provide an update on two-dimensional, Doppler, stress, and transesophageal echocardiography. Breakout sessions are devoted to the interpretation of Doppler hemodynamics, diastolic function, stress echocardiography, congenital heart disease, interventional and perioperative echocardiography.
