Cardiology Grand Rounds is designed to supply knowledge to our audience to allow them to improve their competence and performance in delivering cardiovascular care. Topics are identified through departmental findings, morbidity and mortality conferences, opinion leader reviews, literature reviews, epidemiological data, and national guidelines. Examples of topics being address in the 2017 Grand Rounds Series.
- Severe aortic stenosis and severe coronary artery disease is difficult to manage since symptoms are similar and ofter overlap. The timing of diagnostic and percutaneous treatment procedures are often difficult to determine what should be addressed first.
- Emerging imaging technologies are changing the manner in which we are assessing patients for ischemic coronary artery disease. Updating and enhancing our knowledge in how to choose the best tests for individual patients is important for high quality care.
- Patient with systemic and other inflammatory diseases are at higher risk than the average population for adverse cardiovascular events. There are emerging data for our providers to learn about unique risk features of these patients to improve their overall care.
