2012SCAI/AATS/ACCF/STS Multisociety expert consensus statement: Operator & institutional requirements for transcatheter valve repair and replacement; Part 1 TAVR.
Enabled by the development of new technologies, treatment of valvular heart disease by transcatheter techniques is becoming a favored approach of cardiac providers, resulting in less invasive treatment for patients previously treatable only with open-heart surgery or, in many cases, not treatable at all. Recognition from the medical community of the applicability, effectiveness and practicality of catheter-based transcatheter valve therapies has further increased interest in these treatments. Training program content, standards, credentialing, and board certifications for cardiac surgical procedures and percutaneous coronary intervention are well developed, but no such structure exists in the field of percutaneous structural or valvular heart disease therapies. The purpose of this paper is to outline criteria for operator and institutional requirements in order to enable institutions and providers to participate responsibly in this new and rapidly developing field.
