Takeda invites you to a scientific webinar on Fabry disease, intended for cardiologists.
The 1-hour webinar will feature information & insights on Fabry pathology, cardio- diagnostics & current therapies. The presentations will be completed with real-life patient cases.
Although Fabry disease (FD) was identified a century ago, it is still a challenging condition to diagnose and treat. Patients traditionally are suffering from a considerable delay before a diagnosis is made. Cardiac involvement is the current leading cause of death in FD. However, an increase in functional clinical awareness could lead to a rapid growth in the prevalence of FD. This webinar, led by Prof. Antoine Bondue, Dr. Wim Terryn and Dr. Matthias Dupont, is providing an outline for the cardiologist and summarizes the pathology, the cardiovascular consequences there of, modalities used in diagnosis and current indications for treatment.
