Pocket Guidelines on Valvular Heart Disease


2017 ESC/EACTS Guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease


„Decision making in VHD involves accurate diagnosis, timing of intervention, risk assessment and, based on these, selection of the most suitable type of intervention. These guidelines focus on acquired VHD, are oriented towards management and do not deal with endocarditis or congenital valve disease, including pulmonary valve disease, as separate guidelines have been published by the ESC on these topics.”
