On October 28, 2022, ViVitro Labs and The Cardiovascular Translational Lab at St. Paul’s Vancouver Canada present Re-Do TAVR Webinar, the latest in translational cardiovascular research in a quarterly interactive webinar format.
- Dr. Toby Rogers of MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute presents: ‘Re-Do TAVR & Lifetime Patient Management’
- Dr. Myriam Akodad of St. Paul’s Hospital presents: ‘Bench Testing to inform Re-Do TAVR’
- Dr. Jaffar Khan of St. Francis Hospital and Heart Center presents: ‘Innovations to Facilitate Re-Do TAVR’
Re-Do TAVR Webinar presentations will be followed by a Discussion Panel with moderators Janar Sathananthan and Stephanie Sellers. Join us on October 28!
A recording of the Re-Do TAVR Webinar will be available afterwards to watch anytime. All registrants will be notified when the recording is online. Post-presentation discussion sessions will not be recorded and will only be available to those attending live.
