II level Master in Structural Interventional Cardiology A.Y. 2024/25

  • Open Admissions

Program overview

The II level Master in Structural Interventional Cardiology aims to provide theorical and practical skills in the field of structural interventional cardiology.

The candidate will be exposed to structural intervention procedures like transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), percutaneous correction of mitral regurgitation with MitraClip, percutaneous left atrial appendage closure, percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) and percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect and of paravalvular leak.

Procedural pre-planning will take great importance in the course. With regards to the TAVI procedure, the candidate will learn how to read and interpret a pre-procedural CTscan, how to select the proper prosthesis (type of prosthesis, sizing), how to avoid and eventually treat potential procedural complications.

The results will be verified daily during the catheterization laboratory attendance and by the writing of an experimental thesis.
