Key Messages for Clinicians in the 2020 AHA/ACC Guideline for the Management of Patients with Valvular Heart Disease
Wednesday, March 24, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. CT
In your evaluation of a patients with suspected valvular heart disease, learn the diagnostic strategies for early detection of valvular disease and appropriate long term management. Discover appropriate tools for assessment and intervention based on valvular disease stage, specifically in cases of mitral regurgitation and aortic stenosis.
These are some of the areas identified in the new guideline on managing patients with valvular heart disease. Thoralf Sundt, MD, Vera Rigolin, MD, and Hani Jneid, MD explore guideline updates and explain how revised recommendations translate into clinical practice.

ATTR in Primary Care – A Zebra Worth Hunting
Recorded on Thursday, Jan. 28, 2021
Recording will be available soon
Join us live on Thursday, January 28, 2021 when Louis Kuritzky, MD, Jennifer Jones, MD and Frederick Ruberg, MD present introductory information on ATTR, as a member of the disorders categorized as ‘protein misfolding disorders’. The targeted audience for this webinar are primary care providers, with the goal that clarification of typical ATTR clinical scenarios will enable more prompt consideration of the diagnosis, and timely referral to appropriate clinicians expert in management of the amyloidosis in order to confirm diagnosis and provide pharmacologic treatment.

ATTR Amyloidosis: Emerging Therapies and Treatment
The goal of this continuing medical education (CME) webinar is to improve the care of patients with Transthyretin Amyloidosis (ATTR amyloidosis). Recent and ongoing clinical trials studying novel ATTR-specific therapies are discussed, along with pharmacological treatments for ATTR cardiomyopathy and neuropathy and strategies to ensure patient access to ATTR therapies.
Posterior Circulation Strokes – Enduring Webinars
Challenges in Recognition and Diagnosis of Acute Ischemic Stroke from Vertebrobasilar Disease
Posterior Circulation Stroke is diagnosed on the basis of history and clinical examination, assisted by imaging. This is the first webinar in our series on posterior circulation strokes where the clinical history and presentation of acute ischemic stroke caused by basilar artery and vertebral artery occlusion is reviewed along with a discussion of imaging modalities useful for diagnosis and a review of populations most at risk of underdiagnosis of these types of strokes.
Symptoms and Syndromes of Posterior Circulation Strokes: What to Recognize in Patient Care
This webinar explores the history, presentation, and imaging of strokes caused by the occlusion of the Posterior Cerebral Artery and explains those caused by occluded vertebral and basilar arteries as well as identifying major complications with strokes associated with these vessels. This is the second webinar from the Posterior Circulation Stroke series.
Novel Concepts, Current Debates and Treatment Considerations in Cardio-Oncology
Learn from current discussions on cardiovascular toxicities related to cancer treatment. Presentations in this activity address identification of cardiovascular disease risk factors prior to planned oncologic treatment, cardioprotective and monitoring strategies, prevention of cardiotoxicity, and treatment considerations. CME/CE and ABIM MOC credit available.
