Heart Valve Disease is Global and Transversal: Malaga 2023 awaits you

“The times they are a-changin’” is a well-known song by Bob Dylan. Medicine has always been dynamic and evolving; nowadays, faster than ever. The advent of new devices to substitute the damaged heart valves using extracorporeal circulation, induced an extraordinary advance in the field of heart valve disease. Non-invasive cardiac imaging has also been developed to evaluate the normal function of these prosthesis and further on, to evaluate and ensure the road map for valve repair. Intraoperative echocardiography allowed for the potential to repair mitral, tricuspid and later on aortic valves.
