Valvular Heart Disease: The Aortic Valve
Registration required for CME credit
Moderator: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D.
Featured Expert: Rekha Mankad, M.D.
It’s estimated that between 2% and 3% of the population has some form of valvular heart disease and this increases with age. Most of these patients are initially cared for by primary care providers. Most valvular disease deaths are due to disease of the aortic valve and it’s important to recognize these patients early in order to assess for progression and the need for surgical intervention. What are the presenting symptoms of aortic valve disease? What’s the best way to manage and follow these patients and when should a cardiologist and cardiac surgeon become involved in the care of the patient? In this podcast, we’ll discuss these questions and more with cardiologist Rekha Mankad, M.D., from the Mayo Clinic.
This course is intended for primary care providers: physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants
