The Changing TAVR Landscape" is a comprehensive multiepisodic CME series addressing critical aspects of the evolving transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) landscape. Join our experts as they discuss topics on patient identification ranging from the use of echocardiography to identify symptomatic severe aortic stenosis patients to challenging case discussions, device durability, and up-to-date clinical trial data.
In accordance with the ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence, Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) requires that individuals in a position to control the content of an educational activity disclose all relevant financial relationships with any ineligible company. GLC mitigates all conflicts of interest to ensure independence, objectivity, balance, and scientific rigor in all its educational programs.
