Training in valve disease

Experience gained during normal clinical activity. 


Specialist valve activity

I lead a weekly valve MDM with consultant cardiologists, cardiac physiologists, GPs, Trainees, medical students.  I lead a specialist valve clinic seeing 6 new and 20 follow-up patients each week.  The unit performs 30 TAVI, 5 transcatheter paraprosthetic leak closures, and 1 transcatheter mitral valve procedures each year.  We perform 50-100 valve stress echocardiograms, 200 valve CT and 400 valve CMR each year.

Patients seen
Moderate and severe native valve disease, post-endocarditis and post intervention, Mitral prolapse and bicuspid aortic valves

Patients not seen
