Dear friends,
 It gives me immense pleasure to invite you all to the 17th Annual Workshop. Aortic Valve Repair is not widely practiced due to various reasons and one among it being the lack of a structured approach to deal with the problem unlike the Mitral  Valve. Last year we had Prof. Schafers who beautifully demonstrated the techniques and introduced us to geometric height, effective height and various techniques involved in remodeling. To complete the subject and to explore all possible ways and techniques we continue with the same theme this year but with different school of practices. Two other pioneers in this field, Prof. Gebrine El Khoury and Prof. Emmanuel Lansac will be our visiting faculty this year.

Prof. K. Chandrasekaran, from Mayo clinic who has done a lot of original work in Valvular Heart disease including the PISA will enlighten us on Echo Assessment in the Opertating Room. The programme is packed with interesting topics, with relevance to current clinical practices. Also we have a national faculty rich in experience and with your continued participation and interaction, I am sure we will be having another wonderful two days of academics. As in the past we will have a very useful pre dinner session called “ Meet the Experts”, a new format this year. I request you all to kindly register early to help us organize it better. For accomotation you may find the four conference hotels with tariff given in the brochure. Please quote GKNM conference to avail the special rates when you write to them or book online.
The venue of the conference will be in GKD Auditorium, GKNM Hospital to facilitate better faculty interaction during a live workshop.
