This webinar will discuss which surgical and interventional therapies we can offer in heart failure patients and when; debating controversial indications and difficult decisions. 

The learning objectives will be as follows: 

  • To understand when to refer for surgical therapy and advanced intervention strategies
  • To understand the decision process and critically analyse pros and cons of invasive therapies
  • To have a methodological approach towards difficult cases
