MINIMALLY INVASIVE AND TRANS-CATHETER CARDIAC SURGERY

Research Center

The research center was founded in 2020 as an interdepartmental center within the Università Politecnica delle Marche (UNIVPM). The Center aims to promote the knowledge, development and dissemination of minimally invasive and trans-catheter cardiac surgery.

In this area, its activity consists in designing and implementing research projects in the fields of new device, techniques and technology development, health technology assessment, health management, artificial intelligence, 3D modeling, computational and experimental models for fluid/hemodynamic analysis and valve functional testing. Moreover, the Center promotes clinical trials, teaching and scientific dissemination activities.

INNOVATION AND RESEARCH

Cornerstones

  • Without losing their excellent short- and long-term outcomes, cardiac surgeons are ready to target new measures of outcomes that are related to patient’s satisfaction and QoL. A multidisciplinary approach from surgeons, anesthesiologists, perfusionists, nurses and physical therapists may help reducing the impact of our interventions by reducing physical and psychological trauma, fastening recovery with enhanced post-operative lifestyle.
  • The development of simplified techniques is crucial for MICS dissemination within a surgical team/community.
  • Cardiac surgeons should embrace catheter-based techniques and technologies in theirs and their patients’ interest.

Our Research Center is at work to generate the evidence at support of the above-mentioned notions.

2021/22 ANCONA ADVANCED COURSES

with limited access

Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery: Aortic and Mitral (Winter Edition)
Minimally Invasive and Trans-catheter Aortic Valve Interventions  (Spring Edition)

Our  courses, through frontal teaching and observation of operations performed in the operating/hybrid room, are ideated to be highly interactive and aimed at expanding the knowledge of minimally invasive and trans-catheter interventions on heart valves. In particular, approaches such as ministernotomy, anterolateral and transaxillary minithoracotomy for the exposure of the aortic, mitral and tricuspid valves will be taught in a thorough way so that these can then be applied by the learners independently. With the  collaboration of perfusionists and  anesthetists, the principles our 360° multidisciplinary MICS approach will be demonstrated in practice through the use of MiECC, ultrafast track anesthesia protocols and early ICU rehabilitation.

With regard to TAVI, after providing CT-based preoperative planning and catheters principles, transfemoral TAVI will be demonstrated in step-by-step fashion with the aids of videos and, on day 3 , directly in the hybrid room. The learning surgeon should return home well convinced TAVI is an intervention that can be learned and that should become part of his/her armamentarium.

The course has a limited number of places available (from 4 to 6). To participate in the allocation of seats, learners will need to make a reservation starting June 7.

Dates and registration fee will be shortly provided.
