Hoping for Good Data from Partner II B: Blogging from ACC.13
Several Cardiology Fellows who are attending ACC.13 in San Francisco this week are blogging for CardioExchange. The Fellows include Tariq Ahmad, Megan Coylewright, Jeremiah Depta, Kumar Dharmarajan, Payal Kohli, and Sandeep Mangalmurti. View the previous post here and the next one here.
The TAVR session Sunday morning walked the walk on the need for multidisciplinary teams. The panel was composed of a nurses, interventionalists, and surgeons. They addressed bail out strategies, focusing mostly on vascular catatrophes. I hope the data from PARTNER II B presented today moves us forward quickly so we don’t have to continue to subject our patients to our outdated commercial sheath sizes.
