Protection is not everything

November 6, 2019 | 19:30 CET


See how important good positioning is for good protection

An 81-year-old female patient was scheduled to undergo a TAVI (Transarterial Vascular Aortic Repair) at the Vienna General Hospital – Medical University Vienna, due to a symptomatic aortic stenosis. The indication was clear, the preparation was perfect, and protection was even used – yet despite this excellent preparation, an Interventionalist had to jump in to save the patient at the last minute! As in many situations in medicine, and also throughout life in general, you can plan everything and protect from everything, but sometimes team work and helpers are needed; and sometimes these helpers are Interventionalists! Follow Christian Loewe and Florian Wolf with the assistance of Max de Bucourt and see how important good positioning might be for good protection!
