On 18 January 2022, N. El-Faquir will defend her PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Clinical Application of Patient-Specific Computer Simulation and Advanced Imaging in TAVI’.

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation is increasingly used to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis in all risk categories and is projected to be the preferred treatment modality. As patient selection and operator experience have improved, it is hypothesised that device-host interactions will play a dominant role in outcome. This, in combination with the increasing number of valve types and sizes, confronts the physician with the dilemma to choose the valve that best fits the individual patient. This necessitates the availability of pre-procedural computer simulation and advanced imaging that is based upon the integration of the patient-specific anatomy, the physical and (bio)mechanical properties of the valve and recipient anatomy. Therefore, we examined the clinical application of computer simulation and advanced imaging in TAVI.

The PhD defences will not take place publicly in the usual way. A live stream link has been provided to candidate. The ceremony will begin exactly at 10:30.
