“Updates in cardiac devices, Part 2” was a talk originally given at the 8th Australian and New Zealand Symposium of Perioperative Medicine Special Interest Group: “Updates in Perioperative Medicine 360” which took place between November 7th-9th 2019.

This piece is focused upon transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) devices. “A balloon valvular plasti in comparison to a TAVI is 90% of the risk, 10% of the gain” you’re trading one problem with another, argues our speaker.
