Symposium Summary

This symposium provides a comprehensive update on the latest developments, cutting edge technologies, current controversies and future directions in the field of echocardiography. Clinical presentations and echocardiographic studies will cover Hemodynamics, mitral regurgitation, aortic stenosis, tricuspid regurgitation, valvular heart disease, Takotsubo cardiomyopathy, diastolic dysfunction, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, native and prosthetic valve endocarditis, preserved ejection fraction, 3-D echo, contrast echo, the role of echo in heart failure, myocardial mechanics, reliability of ejection fraction measurement and much more. 

Upon completion of this symposium, participants should be better able to:

Saturday, September 26

As a result of these presentations, participants should be better able to:

 Explain the physiology behind the basic hemodynamic measurements made in everyday echocardiography, such as stroke volume, Bernoulli equation and continuity equation.

 Assess diastolic function assessment

 Assess the timing of surgical intervention in asymptomatic patient with chronic mitral regurgitation.

 Distinguish primary and secondary mitral regurgitation.

 Decipher the cause of area-gradient mismatch so as to best counsel aortic stenosis patients on the most ideal treatment strategy.

 Recognize the etiology and quantification of tricuspid regurgitation and define its prognosis. 

 Recognize aortic stenosis among symptomatic and asymptomatic patients to diagnose and determine its severity. 

 Describe the clinical findings of aortic stenosis to determine whether further hemodynamic assessment is necessary.

 Compare invasive and non-invasive techniques for mitral valve repair.

 Diagnose and manage patients undergoing surgery for repair of bicuspid aortic regurgitation, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or valve resuspension in patients with ascending aortic dilation. 

 Determine prognosis in chest pain patients without ST segment elevation. 

 Recognize the role of assessing myocardial perfusion and regional function in acute myocardial ischemia. 

 Recognize the various echocardiographic phenotypes associated with stress cardiomyopathy. 

 Describe diastolic function in stress cardiomyopathy.  

 Examine the usefulness of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) for predicting thromboembolism.

 Recognize the anatomic features of functional and organic mitral regurgitation (MR).

 Determine the physiologic differences in MR severity.

 Define the approaches to interventional and surgical treatment of MR.

 Explore how the etiology of pericardial constriction has changed over the recent decades and examine why the diagnosis may have important therapeutic implications. 

 Review the pathophysiologic differences between constrictive pericarditis and restrictive cardiomyopathy.

 Describe the differential diagnosis in those who have increased left ventricular wall thickness and how echocardiography can be used to help narrow down on the etiology.

 Recognize the differential diagnosis in patients with increased left ventricular wall thickness, and explain how echocardiography can be used to help narrow down the etiology.

 Describe coronary microcirculation, and recognize the utility of microbubbles in diagnosis and treatment. 

Saturday, September 26 

As a result of these presentations, participants should be better able to:

 Recognize the strengths and limitations of the echocardiographic evaluation of right ventricular size and function, and implement appropriate recommended guidelines.

 Identify the diagnostic accuracy of different strain and strain rate variables and their reproducibility in various disease states.

 Determine the extent to which strain and strain rate measurements can enhance patient management and improve postoperative outcomes.  

 Recognize the dynamic nature of mitral regurgitation in Myxomatous diseases.

 Describe the physiologic difference in mitral annular function.

 Identify the link between 3D physiology and surgical repair.

 Explain the role of diastolic dysfunction in producing symptomatic heart failure in patients with a normal ejection fraction and discuss optimal treatment options.

 Cite echocardiographic features and imaging requirements for a diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and  outline the basic management strategies. 

 Assess contemporary ultrasound tools to diagnose diastolic dysfunction.

 Determine how to better target abnormalities of patients with heart failure to reduce the substantial burden of morbidity and mortality. 

 Recognize the value of 3-D echo for pre-surgical planning, intra-procedural guidance, and post-procedural assessment of valvular heart disease.

 Cite specific examples demonstrating the role of hemodynamics as an integral part of Cardiology.

Fun Fact

In the late 1950s, real estate pioneer Alfred and Doris Kaskel purchased 2,400 acres of swampland between NW 36 Street and NW 74 Street and from NW 79 Avenue to NW 117 Avenue for about $49,000 with the intention of building a golf course and hotel. In 1962, the Kaskel's dream came true when they opened a hotel and country club that featured the Blue, Red and Par 3 golf courses. They named it Doral - a combination of Alfred and Doris.​​​​​​
