Important breakthroughs have redefined opportunities to change the outlook of the disease with a broad range of medical therapies, devices, and care strategies.

The purpose of the 14th Annual CVT Symposium is to update the cardiovascular team (CVT) with emerging studies and to provide practical guidance in heart failure therapies, structural heart therapies and health policies.
