Aortic Stenosis; diagnosis, referral and treatment in NSW

On-demand recorded 28 Sep 2021

Aortic Stenosis is the most common types of heart valve disease, currently affecting approximately 2% of those aged 65years and over, increasing to 10% for those aged over 80. Alarmingly, left untreated, the survival rate of this disease after development of symptoms is approximately 50% at 2 years.

This webinar will provide an overview of the causes of aortic stenosis and progression of this disease, specifically focusing on diagnosis and referral within NSW whilst also discussing the evolution of treatment based on the current 2020 AHA/ACC Valvular Heart Disease guidelines.
