27 July 2019

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the AfroValve Repair Camp in Ghana. The first workshop will take place from:
Date:  Saturday to Sunday, 14-15 September 2019
Venue: Swiss Spirit & Alisa Hotels, North Ridge, Accra, Ghana.
This initiative is designed to introduce repair techniques for juvenile rheumatic valve disease which affect mostly (85%) the mitral valve.
 
Practicing cardiac surgeons and members of heart teams (cardiologists and cardio-anaesthetists) who are responsible for the decision-making for juvenile rheumatic mitral valve procedures are cordially invited to register.
 
Participation by invitation only: Six (6) work stations are available for practicing surgeons for the hands-on training.
 
Hotel accommodation: Swiss Spirit & Alisa hotel, Accra.
 
Registration: Please complete the registration form and send it to: cyankah@web.de or per online www.pascats.org
 
We look forward to welcoming you to a most pleasant and educative AfroValve Repair Camp in Accra.
Kind regards
Charles Yankah

AfroValve Repair Camp, Ghana
Master Class Rheumatic Mitral Valve Repair 
Course in West Africa, 14 -15 September 2019     
 
 
 
Background
Mitral valve repair esp in children is an athrombogenic procedure versus replacement which is underutilized in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) due to lack of skill training programs.

Aims
To promote athrombogenic valve repair procedures for the management of juvenile rheumatic mitral valve disease.
To advance cardiovascular education in rheumatic valve surgery.

Learning Objectives
The two-day course will provide an insight into the:
Normal anatomy, pathomorphology of mitral valve apparatus (annulus, leaflets, chordae, papillary muscle)
Echocardiographic features of the normal and rheumatic mitral valve apparatus.
To learn and understand the basic concepts of mitral valve repair.
To practice repeatedly on biological simulators under tutorial guidance how to apply the various techniques for repairing different mitral valve pathologies in individual patients. 
To acquire surgical skills and competence in mitral valve repair.
To learn limitations and predictability for successful repair of different mitral valve pathologies on biological simulator.
To empower young generation surgeons to do complex valve repairs, in a reasonable time-frame with low rate of procedural related complications.

Structure and design
Module I: Introductory lectures and live surgeries (in Box)
Module II: Hands-on wetlab training
Module III: Local proctoring on request

Target Groups
Practicing cardiac surgeons and  members of heart teams (cardiologists and cardio-anaesthetists) who are responsible for the decision-making for juvenile rheumatic mitral valve procedures are cordially invited.

Participation by invitation: Only six (6) surgeons for the hands-on training.

Hotel accommodation
Swiss Spirit & Alisa hotel, Accra. Please make your hotel reservation through the organizers: cyankah@web.de
The organizers will facilitate the reservation of the hotel rooms after confirmation of participation with arrival and departure dates on your behalf upon request.

Workstation
Six registered participants will work in three groups, each group of two trainees stand opposite each other. The work table will provide comfort in standing or sitting to avoid backache.
